BAUHAUS- Bela Lugosi's Dead LP

Regular price $ 27.00
On January 26th, 1979, Bauhaus entered Beck Studios in Wellingborough, England and created their gothic rock masterpiece “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”. The song would take the greater part of the year to see its release when it was issued by Small Wonder Records on August 6th.

During that session 4 other tracks were recorded, but went unreleased such as the Ska Reggae inspired song  “Harry”, (named after Blondie’s Debbie Harry) which would emerge later on the Kick in Eye (Searching For Satori EP), and the CD version of Mask. Another track “Bite My Hip” would later be re-recorded as “Lagartija Nick”. Other unreleased tracks on the EP are the extremely rare “Some Faces”, and the original version of “Boys”, which was re-recorded for the original 12 inch’s b-side.

To celebrate the Godfathers of Goth’s 40th anniversary, Leaving Records and Stones Throw Records are set to issue this unreleased treasure as The Bela Session.

The Bela Session comes out on vinyl on November 23rd, and is the first official vinyl reissue of “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” in over 30 years.
