Emerald Belles very Sweet (Dreams) :) https://youtu.be/tECxpAlo3do
yep we released our Sweet Dreams album 36 years ago today on Jan 4th 1983 !!! We recorded most of the album during 1982 in the eaves of a picture framing factory in Chalk Farm in N. London. It was a very experimental album made on very little equipment as you can see in this pic of me recording at the time.All our gear was second hand and the total cost of all the equipment to make up the studio was under 5,000 which we borrowed from the bank ! We had 1 Soundcraft board mixing desk, 1 Teac 8 track recorder , 1 bell noise reduction system, 1 Klark Technic spring reverb , 1 Roland space echo ( still my favorite) 1 prototype movement MCS drum computer. We used our Roland SH01 synthesizer and we secretly borrowed an Oberheim OBX synth .The only other instrument on the Sweet Dreams Are Made of This track is Annie and I playing milk bottles full of water! Annie laid down the vocal in record time and in fact the single Sweet Dreams is the fastest record we ever made. On the actual album I also love "Love Is A Stranger" "The Walk""This City Never Sleeps" "Jennifer" . in fact I love all the songs we created on this album with the minimal amount of equipment but the maximum amount of creativity , but as they say...Necessity is the mother of Invention.......

The fact that Sweet Dreams was released 36 years ago is almost inconceivable to me. Somewhere in my head I’m stuck in a time warp of either a 28... or.. 8 year old!! Boy did that ship sail!! And what an adventure it has been... And the even weirder thing is that I’ve just had my 64th birthday! I can’t get around that either.. I am suddenly living in an elderly person’s body.. like a new invention! Forwards everyone.. Whatever makes your dreams sweet or your sweet dreams.. What are you still looking for again? Love and Peace in these interesting times.. from Annie L
Today EURYTHMICS release a vinyl version of the album ‘PEACE’ - originally released in October 1999. ‘PEACE’ was followed by a world tour, to promote the work of Amnesty International and Greenpeace International. All profits generated by the ‘PEACE’ Tour were donated and shared between both organisations. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart are proud supporters of Nobel Peace Prize winning Amnesty International – whose exceptional work continues to protect human rights around the world since it was first founded 57 years ago!

"To buy a vinyl album, you have to have a record player and you have to have speakers, and this is a great thing because that means people are going to listen to your music not on a cell phone, but they’re going to listen to it out of a sound system. The important thing about vinyl releases is that people buy them and actually put them on the turntable and listen to a side, because we chose the tracks to be played in a particular order, and that was really important.” - Dave Stewart
