Yello - Yell40 years 2LP
The legendary electronic duo YELLO are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a comprehensive retrospective.
“YELL40 YEARS” by Dieter Meier and Boris Blank is not a common best of with the typical songs like “The Race”, “Oh Yeah” or the groundbreaking “Bostich”, but more a place for all the pearls of their discography that have always stood for the YELLO sound cosmos, but never really received the spotlight that they deserve. Songs like the everlasting fan favourite “I Love You”, the eccentric “Rubberbandman” or the Mellow YELLO classic “Desire” – the stylistic range of the Zurich originals have always known no limits.
With detailed liner notes and visual impressions of the last four decades, “40 Years” is a must-have for all lovers of the special electronic sounds made in Switzerland.
Available as a strictly limited 4CD hardcover book, as a regular 2CD, as a black 180g double vinyl and of course as download and on all streaming portals.
The limited 4CD hardcover book version also contains a retrospective “A Wider Shade Of YELLO” curated by Boris Blank, on which mainly the “mellow” and not immanently obvious YELLO pieces were brought together, whereas on the fourth bonus CD favourite remixes of the past 40 years have been compiled. Some of them have been completely unpublished so far, including by DJ luminary DJ Hell and the former Factory Records representative, author and filmmaker Mark Reeder.
