La casa azul. La Revolución Sexual [25th Elefant Anniversary Reissue] 2x12" LP
We are moving forward with our special collection of re-releases to celebrate Elefant Records’ 25th anniversary. In 2014 we turned 25, and we announced our plans to release a collection of 25 editions with a focus on vinyl, on attention to every detail in every release, some extra tracks and many surprises both for fans and for newcomers who weren’t able to buy the albums by THE SCHOOL, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, LE MANS, JUNIPER MOON and LOS FLECHAZOS, among others, when they were first released. We’re back to new re-releases from LA CASA AZUL, from the magnificent “Tan Simple Como El Amor” (in black, 1000-copy, numbered, limited-edition vinyl), and their big hit, “La Revolución Sexual”, with a special double-vinyl release, which will have the album’s original songs and the extras, covers of other groups and songs from the album in other languages with special collaborations, which were included on that second part of the album that was “Lo Que Nos Dejó La Revolución”. In this case, the release will be on transparent vinyl, with a different colored album cover and sleeve by Gregorio Soria, the original designer of the first edition of the album, as a numbered,1000-copy limited-edition.
If we had to choose just one album from LA CASA AZUL, it would be absolutely impossible to make a decision. They’re all perfect, inimitable, and different. But there was definitely a before and after the album “La Revolución Sexual”. On an artistic level it is on the same level as other albums, making a definite jump toward dance music, using thousands of samples, but it still maintains its own identity and unforgettable memories... There are infinite cultural references, the definitive, almost total embrace of dance and electronic music, among others. But in terms of audience it meant definitive recognition, the one that took him beyond a specialized audience and turned him into a phenomenon. Songs like “La Revolución Sexual”, “Esta Noche Sólo Cantan Para Mí”, “Chicos Malos” and “La Nueva Yma Sumac” were some of the songs responsible for this, especially the first one, which was named as one of the favorite songs to represent Spain at Eurovision.
This is a key album in the history of this group and this label, that we are now re-releasing to celebrate Elefant Records’ 25th anniversary. Transparent double-vinyl that will also include the songs that were released on that delicious sequel, “Lo Que Nos Dejó La Revolución”, full of covers, remixes, and collaborations. The covers range from the impressive “Señora” by Joan Manuel Serrat to “I Want You Back” by the JACKSON FIVE, to John Paul John’s “Love Is In The Air” which became a classic in concerts as well as an authentic exaltation of love. The collaborations include Duglas T. Stewart (BMX BANDITS), THE APRILS from Japan, Yeongene, who is a total pop icon in Korean, and STEREO TOTAL from Germany.
Every last detail of this release is being carefully considered, and only 1000 numbered copies will be released. This is an amazing opportunity to get your hands on one of the most important albums in the history of pop in this country.
