Winston Tong - In A Manner of Speaking (Best Of)

LTM
(LTM2520: 5024545507225)



In a Manner of Speaking is a 'best of' collection by singer and performance artist Winston Tong, also known for his work with American experimental group Tuxedomoon.

Recorded between 1982 and 1990, the twelve tracks include five from Tong's acclaimed 1985 solo album Theoretically Chinese, produced by former Associate Alan Rankine and featuring a stellar cast of guest musicians including Jah Wobble, Steven Morris, Simon Topping and Dave Formula. Two tracks are dance remixes previously only available on an Italian 12-inch single.

The CD also features representative tracks from Tong's other solo projects: Like the Others and Miserere, as well as interpretations from three scarce compilation albums: Duke Ellington's Prelude to a Kiss, witty festive ditty The Twelve Days of Christmas, and Syd Barrett's Late Night.

There are also two memorable Tong songs recorded with Tuxedomoon, namely Albert Camus tribute The Stranger and In a Manner of Speaking, the classic song later covered by Martin Gore of Depeche Mode, and more recently by Nouvelle Vague. Thanks to the Nouvelle Vague cover, IAMOS has become something of a standard, featuring in the soundtracks of several high profile movies and television shows.
