Reveal Records are delighted to welcome Eddi Reader to the label. A series of album re-issues will be made available in July, The Songs Of Robert Burns (Deluxe Edition), Candyfloss And Medicine and Live In Japan prior to the release of a new studio album.
It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience. The single Perfect and parent album First Of A Million Kisses both topped the British charts at the end of the 80s.
She launched her solo career in 1992 and Candyfloss And Medicine was here first solo album. The singles taken from it also presaged the Burns project that was to follow, with the extra tracks including two of his songs.
The classic Songs Of Robert Burns album was originally released to international acclaim in 2003. Eddi toured this album all over the world, finding connections to the Scottish bard everywhere from Kolkata, India to Sydney, Australia.
Eddi was awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to singing, and the same year she released Peacetime featuring the finest traditional players in the United Kingdom and produced by Folk Musician of The Year, John McCusker. This was followed by Love is The Way which was Eddi’s seventh solo album, released in 2009. This album was recorded in a matter of days, featuring songs written with Boo Hewerdine, John Douglas (The Trashcan Sinatras), Jack Maher, Declan O’Rourke and a rare Brian Wilson composition.
2010-12 saw Eddi playing sold out shows to promote Love Is The Way worldwide and saw the original release of the Live In Japan album. It also brought Eddi’s Hollywood movie debut when she featured in Me And Orson Welles with Zac Efron and Clare Danes. Eddi plays a chanteuse in the movie and is featured singing Lets Pretend That There’s A Moon with the Jools Holland Orchestra.
Ae Fond Kiss
