MARC ALMOND: HITS AND PIECES GREATEST HITS TOUR!


HITS AND PIECES – THE BEST OF MARC ALMOND AND SOFT CELL

2 CD & SINGLE CD DIGITAL COMPILATION
RELEASED BY UMe ON MARCH 10TH

As a youngster growing up in Southport, Merseyside, Marc Almond was immersed in the magical world of the 3-minute single. Tuning in to Radio Caroline, Radio Luxembourg and a weekly fix of Top Of The Pops acted as catalysts for the aspiring singer’s dreams and ambitions.

The 45-rpm single was king, and Marc Almond worshipped at its throne. Marc had always aspired to become a great singles artist; he wanted to follow in the footsteps of two of his heroes, David Bowie and Scott Walker in turning the single into an art form.

He achieved exactly that when Tainted Love rocketed to the top of the UK chart in September 1981 (and became the biggest selling single of the year), commencing a singles chart love affair that has played a huge part in Marc’s 40 + year career and has seen him shift in excess of 30 million sales.
