Weekend : Live At Ronnie Scott’s (Cherry Red)
Along with Everything But The Girl, Sade and The Style Council, Weekend were part of a wave of early 80s jazz / bossa-nova influenced groups. Featuring vocals by ex-Young Marble Giants singer Alison Statton, Simon Booth (later of Working Week) and Spike, Weekend released a series of well-received singles and albums for Rough Trade, culminating in this « Live At Ronnie Scott’s » set. This reissue CD features 10 bonus tracks including three previously unreleased versions of tracks that weren’t included on the original album. These were sourced from a pirate recording of the original gig in March 1983. Other bonus tracks include three tracks from a David Jensen BBC session and a recording from The Old Grey Whistle Test.
