A remastered CD edition of landmark album The Return of the Durutti Column, housed in the Dufy sleeve issued by Factory Records in 1980.
A collaboration between virtuoso guitarist Vini Reilly and legendary Manchester producer Martin Hannett, The Return Of The Durutti Column paired Reilly's non-rock sketches with Hannett's electronic textures to produce "perfectly realised, correctly ambient and inventive music." This new 2014 edition on Factory Benelux includes the 9 tracks included on the first Factory pressing, as well as all six 6 tracks which formed side two of the rare second pressing (tracks 14 to 19). Also featured are the two Martin Hannett 'test card' flexi-disc tracks, and Madeleine and Lips That Would Kiss, both previously issued as a 12-inch single on Factory Benelux in October 1980.
The cover art restores the second jacket design issued by Factory from mid-1980 onwards, featuring three miniatures of paintings by Raoul Dufy. The booklet features period Durutti images by photographer Daniel Meadows, and extensive liner notes with quotes from Vini Reilly, Martin Hannett, Tony Wilson, Peter Saville, Daniel Meadows, John Brierley, Bruce Mitchell and members of Joy Division, who assembled most of the sandpaper originals.
