Yaz: "Get Set" iTunes Exclusive | Reconnected Live Out 9/28

YAZ release RECONNECTED LIVE on September 28th 2010 on double CD, limited edition hardback with a 32-page booklet and download.
The iTunes release features an exclusive track, the previously unreleased and much sought after “Get Set”, which was originally recorded in 1983 and used as the theme to the BBC Children's TV show 'Get Set For Summer'.
RECONNECTED LIVE documents one of pop’s most anticipated tours: in the summer of 2008 Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet reunited for the first time in over 25 years. The Times raved: “Clarke has unobtrusively retooled the band’s music for the digital age, making their vintage 1980s synthesizer ditties sound crisp, fluid and timeless” while The Guardian noted, “Yazoo’s first tour in 26 years finds the chemistry behind their smash hits unchanged.”
RECONNECTED LIVE, produced by Yaz, recorded by Martin Hildred and mixed by Vince Clarke features classic tracks from Yaz’s albums ‘Upstairs At Eric’s’ and ‘You And Me Both’; including Only You, Don’t Go and Situation plus tracks performed live for the first time ever, such as Nobody’s Diary.
The joyous, unlikely coming together of Vince Clarke, who had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet lasted for only 2 albums, performing just 24 concerts worldwide, but left an unforgettable mark on pop. Yaz released ‘Upstairs At Erics’ in July 1982, parting ways 12 months later upon release of their second album ‘You And Me Both’, which reached Number 1 in the UK.
