Yello – Solid Pleasure
Hit Thing re-releases the first two albums on vinyl by the Swiss band Yello (Dieter Meier and Boris Blank) circa 1980 and 1981: Solid Pleasure and Claro Que Si. Crazy disco sound-choppers and original sample-stealers, Yello were, to quote Meier: “bombastic Mahleresque sound painters!” Originally released by Ralph Records in 1980, Solid Pleasure was the debut LP that introduced the world to Yello, and featured the legendary singles “Bimbo” and “Bostich.” Each release contains extensive historical liner notes that reveal a fascinating portrait about the Swiss band and their mysterious connection with Ralph Records. Both sought-after albums vanished into vinyl collector-land after they were sold to Phonogram in Europe, and both have been re-mastered for 150-gram vinyl and cut at Dubplates in Berlin. Each LP is a limited edition of 1,000 copies only!
