Erasure 30 - The Innocents - (Heavyweight Vinyl LP)
Erasure 30 - The Innocents - Heavyweight Vinyl LP
By the time Erasure released their third album, The Innocents, in 1988, they had built up a devoted following and an impressive clutch of hit singles. Produced by Stephen Hague, The Innocents captured Vince and Andy’s star in the ascendant; its huge pop sound and catchy choruses catapulting Erasure to super-stardom in their home country and giving them their long-awaited U.S. breakthrough. The Innocents heralded the beginning of a string of number one albums for the band and went double platinum in the UK, selling over 600,000 copies. It has gone on to sell over 5 million copies worldwide and is Erasure’s best-selling album to date.
The Innocents spawned three hit singles; ‘A Little Respect’ (arguably their signature song), Ship Of Fools’ and ‘Chains Of Love’.
