Vinyl LP pressing. Despite the series of radical shifts that underpinned it's creation, Scritti Politti's second album Cupid & Psyche 85 achieved the virtually impossible. While everything was scaled up - the ambition, the sound, the audience - the singular artistic vision that drove the group not only remained intact and undiluted in these bigger surroundings, but became more inventive, more adventurous and, ultimately, more beloved. Introduced to pianist and programmer David Gamson while making of the band's debut album Songs To Remember, Green Gartside realized he had found a creative foil to help him achieve the ambitions he had for Scritti Politti. Partially recorded in New York, with several tracks produced by Arif Mardin and partially in the UK, with Green and Gamson directly overseeing the process, Cupid & Psyche 85 is infused shimmering synths and the heat of classic funk. Yet weaved together by Green's intoxicating melodies, it is also embroidered with ideas from philosophical writings, while taking cues from myths and fables.
