RECORD STORE DAY Urban Urbane is David J's (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets) fifth Solo album, was originally released on MCA in 1992. The album is a musical travelogue of sorts with the initial recordings taking place in the tiny English village of Guilsborough then London, New York and Los Angeles and aside from referencing those last three ports of call, the songs also name check New Orleans, Saint Petersburg and Memphis. It is a kind of collection of poetic snapshots from an itinerant drifter on the run. The record is graced by contributions from a stellar cast of guest musicians including T Bone Burnett, Peter Murphy, Sonic Boom, Danny Thompson, Max Eider, The Uptown Horns and Charlie Giordano (East Street Band) amongst others. It was co-produced by the great Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Los Lobos etc). To celebrate Urban Urbane's 30th Anniversary this beautiful collection will be released exclusively for Record Store Day for the first time ever on vinyl. It will come as a beautiful 2xLP gatefold record with an entire second LP of unreleased outtakes and demos and full download code. The outtakes will feature guests appearances by T-Bone Burnett, Steven Perkins (Jane's Addiction) and covers from T-Rex and John Cale.
