Coming up on November 10th is a reissue of New Order’s 1987 cult album “Substance”. The reissue comes both on vinyl and CD, but we’ll focus on the 4CD set as this one holds the most material whereas the 2LP plus comes just with three 12” singles (“True Faith”, “True Faith Remix” and “Blue Monday ‘88”).
The 4CD set includes the original album remastered across 2CDs, with a third disc of tracks that were released exclusively on the cassette album. The final disc features “Substance Live” which is an unreleased concert from Irvine Meadows, California 1987.
“Substance” compiles all of the band’s singles to that point in their 12” versions with their respective B-sides, plus the non-album single “True Faith” and B-side “1963” with new versions of “Temptation” and “Confusion”.
The album is the band’s biggest selling to date, with over one million copies sold. “True Faith” was accompanied with the seminal video, directed by French choreographer Philippe Decouflé.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
