Modern Dance (K-Tel)

Modern Dance (K-Tel)

Playing tracks by

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Japan, Human League, Heaven 17, Depeche Mode and more.

Modern Dance was released by K-Tel in December 1981. Unlike any other compilation then or since, it totally nails the new romantic sound of that year. I got hold of a copy in September 1982 and have loved it from day 1. This upload is not a re-creation of the tracklist; instead it's a straight vinyl rip of my original LP. Enjoy.

This sat on my record-player for MONTHS after I bought it back in 1981. Thanks for sharing this!

Brilliant - I too have this album on cassette. Got it at a car boot sale years ago :D

It's deadly Debbie; whatever way it's sequenced, it brings me back to my '80s bedroom.
