The Adventures - The Sea Of Love (Expanded Edition)
Formed in Belfast in 1984 out of the ashes of new wave band Tango Brigade, The Adventures enjoyed a decade-long career, recording four albums for Chrysalis, Elektra and Polydor. The band were fronted by the distinctive vocals of Terry Sharpe, while their songs were largely written by talented guitarist Pat Gribben.
The Sea Of Love, their second album, was their most successful. Issued on Elektra in May 1988, the album reached No. 30 on the UK charts. It was fuelled by the success of the memorable single ‘Broken Land’, a haunting ballad which peaked at No. 20 (it was the most played song on Radio 1 that year).
This expanded reissue is the first time that The Sea Of Love has been revisited on CD. The eight bonus tracks are culled from the various singles plucked from the album – ‘Broken Land’, ‘One Step From Heaven’ and ‘Drowning In The Sea Of Love’.
Pat Gribben has been interviewed for the sleeve-notes and Terry Sharpe has supplied rare images of the band to make this a worthy new edition of this popular album.
