American death rock pioneers CHRISTIAN DEATH are now reissuing one of their most ‘classic’ releases, the 1985 ‘The Wind Kissed Pictures’ on beautiful GREEN vinyl, gatefold sleeve (600 copies) and with much improved, and - frankly speaking – for the first time ever - tasteful graphic artwork. The offering was the first Christian Death release after Rozz Williams left the band and Valor K took over command, to keep the project relevant and inspired.
It features Valor's girlfriend Gitane Demone on vocals on 2 and on keyboards on 1 track and even their common child, Sevan Kand, has a vocal appearance on 'Ouverture'. Originally a 4-tracks mini-album (limited first edition with bonus-track on a 7") on the Italian 'Supporti Fonografici' label, this legendary album has seen countless re-releases on different labels: Chameleon (USA 1986), as 7-tracks CD in 1988 (Supporto F. + Normal Germany), in the same version on Cleopatra USA (1999) and as 8-tracks edition with 1 bonus live-track on Candlelight UK (1999) and on Candlelight US in 2002. ALL of these versions are deleted for ages.
The tracklist of this new 2021 Edition is basically IDENTIC to the Album ‘'Past, Present and Forever' (Contempo Records 1990).
