Mamouna (Reissue) (Deluxe 3CD)

BMG
Vinyl LP

Bryan Ferry’s ninth solo studio album Mamouna is being reissued for the first time since 1994. It was Bryan Ferry’s first studio album in seven years to feature original recordings, having worked on the album for six years under the working title of Horoscope. The previously unreleased alternate recordings to the final Mamouna versions are collected for the first time on these deluxe reissues as the Horoscope album.

The album features a stellar cast of supporting musicians including Nile Rodgers, Guy Pratt and Steve Ferrone, as well as contributions from his Roxy Music bandmates Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay and Brian Eno. The album peaked at Number 11 on the UK Official Album Chart and includes the singles Don’t Want To Know, Your Painted Smile and title track Mamouna.

The 3CD version also includes the Horoscope album, with an additional disc of previously unreleased demos or "Sketches” from both the Mamouna and Horoscope albums.
