Catalogue number JBH059LP
500 copies only. No repress.
Bedazzled is without doubt one of the greatest film soundtracks ever released. It’s a jazz-pop score that has just about everything and became a most desirable LP to play out as interest in super cool film music started to peak in the hip and easy 1990s. But original copies have always been rare (especially UK pressings) and so it sadly became the victim of several quite terrible, shameful bootlegs on vinyl (even one with Gloy glue and glitter on the front!) and also CD. When these ghastly releases arrived on the scene I was devastated and promised myself that I would improve things one day. Well now I have, and this is the first ever legal reissue, and comes directly from Dudley’s master tapes.
It has been an album in gestation for many years, and has been put together with the help of Martine Avenue who oversee Dudley’s music, and Tony Rich, a soundtrack collector and DJ I have known for years who just happens to be obsessed with Bedazzled. He knows more about that film that anyone I know. He also had the amazing Japanese poster I have used for the artwork, and a copy of the mega rare LP Pete And Dud Invite You To Hell (a recording they made to give away at the film premier), which is also included in this package. Also along for the ride is a 7” single, a pressing of alternative takes of “Love Me” and “Bedazzled”.
So, for this release we have the LP, the 7 inch single and a CD of Pete And Dud Invite You To Hell. And the Japaneses Raquel artwork. You will be Bedazzled.
