Pseudo Echo - Love An Adventure (Re-release)

On May 25, Cherry Pop Records will release a remastered and expanded reissue of the 1987 album "Love An Adventure" by Australian pop band Pseudo Echo. The album includes the smash hit "Funky Town". Also included are a couple of their earlier songs, like the brilliant synthpop singles "A Beat For You" and "Listening", in remixed and rerecorded versions.

I really like this band and can't wait for the reissue. Let's hope for a proper digital remaster of their 1984 album "Autumnal Park" too. It's their best one in my opinion.
