The follow up the successful ‘Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s’ released in 2019

“I count myself incredibly lucky when I think back to my 1980’s. A lot of those bands and artists that resonated with me during that time are featured on this, our sequel to our first Lost 80s collection, which we have inspiringly titled “GC Lost 80s Two”!
I must be honest and say as soon as I delivered the track listing for the first compilation, I already had a selection in mind for a sequel (if ever I was asked by those cool folks at Demon). Thankfully, they asked...and this is it.Gary Crowley

65 tracks compiled and themed by Gary Crowley disc by disc. Many of these tracks are rare and hard to find having not appeared on CD before. The better-known artists appearing here are represented by some of their lesser-known (‘lost’) tracks.

The 2 x 180g Clear Heavyweight vinyl, includes an introduction and track-by-track notes by Gary Crowley, plus memories of the era from Mick Talbot (The Style Council) and more.

The 4CD media book includes a 32-page book, an introduction and track-by-track notes by Gary Crowley, plus memories of the era from Mick Talbot (The Style Council), Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister), Dr Robert (The Blow Monkeys) Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17) Andy Polaris (Animal Nightlife) and more.

“Expect a selection of not only the bigger names with some of their ‘lost’ gems, but also a raft of lesser- known artists. Many of the latter came nowhere near the mainstream but most certainly (IMHO) deserve another chance to shine under the spotlight. It was such a diverse and eclectic time for music, hopefully this box set mirrors that.Gary Crowley
