Record Store Day 2019: Ten of the best releases

March 1st, 2019

In 1984, at the height of their fame, Duran Duran played to 150,000 people over three nights at California’s Oakland Coliseum.

The concerts were filmed for TV specials that aired around the globe, but were never officially released… until now.

The 11-track record includes live versions of Girls On Film, Is There Something I Should Know and Save A Prayer – which Simon Le Bon dedicated to Marvin Gaye, who had been shot dead days earlier.

“I rarely look back over my shoulder but listening to the mastered version of this album, it motivated us to recently play the song The Seventh Stranger for the first time since 1984,” said keyboard player Nick Rhodes.

“Things only got stranger because when we rehearsed it sounded the same as when we wrote it and when we last performed it… I think this record captures the spirit of who Duran Duran were then and still reflects who we are now.”
