LTM is proud to announce the first complete CD release of the classic compilation album Ghosts of Christmas Past, first released on chic Belgian indie label Les Disques du Crepuscule in 1981. Originally released as on 2 December 1981, Ghosts of Christmas Past (Chantons Noel) featured 13 exclusive festive tracks from the international avant garde and new wave, as well as the celebrated Factory Records and Postcard rosters. Then, as now, the contributing artists include The Durutti Column, Aztec Camera, Paul Haig, Tuxedomoon, Wim Mertens, Cabaret Voltaire, Michael Nyman, The Names, Thick Pigeon and Simon Topping of A Certain Ratio. The original album now features nine bonus tracks drawn from later editions of the album released between 1982 and 1986. These include seasonal contributions from The Pale Fountains, Antena, The French Impressionists, Winston Tong and The Arcadians (aka French pop polymath Louis Philippe), as well as extra tracks from Paul Haig and The Durutti Column. The booklet features original artwork by Benoit Hennebert and Jean-Fran ois Octave, as well as a facsimile of the insert featuring Christmas postcards, and detailed liner notes. The original 'bauble' cover art by Hennebert is widely recognised as one of his finest designs.This new CD edition has been digitally remastered from the original mastertapes, and features 74 minutes of material. Most of the featured tracks remain unavailable elsewhere. The CD follows on the great success of our 2006 re-release of the 1980 Crepuscule compilation From Brussels With Love.
