Originally released on vinyl only between his first two studio albums (Human's Lib and Dream Into Action) for the European market on 8th December 1984 (and later on CD in 1988), Cherry Red are pleased to announce for Record Store Day 2021 that they will be re-issuing a remastered version of Howard Jones The 12" Album on translucent red vinyl. This was Jones' first album to feature 12" mixes and was once again produced by Rupert Hine and mixed by Stephen W. Tayler, who also mixed Jones' first 2 studio albums. The album was recorded and mixed at Farmyard Studios in England. The album peaked at number 15, spent 33 weeks in the UK Chart and was certified Gold selling in excess of 100,000 copies. For the first time, Jones' music became part of a mix culture with The 12" Album containing six remixed tracks, each one segued into the next.
