If you're like me and you spent your awkward high school years listening to music from the likes of Erasure, Depeche Mode, and New Order, you'll be surprised to hear that Union Street, Erasure's most recent album, is entirely acoustic. Vince Clarke, one-half of the British duo, describes the making of the album on the official Erasure website by saying, "We just felt there were songs on our albums that had been missed as songs.... It was great going back through those songs, some of which I hadn't listened to properly since we made them - suddenly you heard some of the naivety that was in there in the first place."
Other Erasure albums in the library's collection include Cowboy andNightbird. If you're new to Erasure, start with Pop! The First 20 Hits.
So, Erasure fans (surely you're out there somewhere), what do you think of Erasure unplugged?
