Blast From the Past:... Arcadia: So Red the Rose (1985)

A forgotten/underappreciated gem of the 80s...

When Robert Palmer borrowed half of Duran Duran to form Power Station... The rest of 'em did a much better album as Arcadia. Top to bottom a great listen. Simon LeBon's voice in top form.

Some music video highlights:


arcadia - goodbye is forever (HD)

arcadia - the flame (hq)

On the mellow side... Arcadia - The Promise Take a good listen to who's singing background vocals starting with the first chorus.

Another good one never released as a single... Arcadia - Keep Me In The Dark

ETA:

By popular demand: Arcadia - election day / standard version (HD)

No. "Election Day" was pretty much Arcadia's biggest hit.

I know that, I was saying Sting to the background vocals in the Arcadia song

I enjoyed The Power Station as well. Obviously the hits 'Some Like It Hot' & 'Bang A Gong' but I really like 'Lonely Tonight' The production and vocals in the song are killer.

Always liked the beginning of this one and the use of baritone sax.

Yeah... but I figured that's the one that everybody had heard so I didn't include it. I'll ETA it.

Sting?


He never pulled that many "cameos" so I always thought it was pretty cool.


It's weird listening to the whole album... feels a like it's leaning a little towards the Camouflage sound (except Simon's voice).
