Yaz plot Reconnected Live


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 “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 the summer tour of 2008 Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet when 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.

Vince Clarke  had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet lasted for only 2 albums, performing just 24 concerts worldwide. 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.

Speaking prior to the Reconnected tour, Vince Clarke said: “It’s been really good going back to these songs after such a long while. Many of them have never been played live. I’m looking forward to performing them with Alison for all the fans who’ve enjoyed our music through the years but never had a chance to see Yazoo in concert.”

Alison Moyet explained: “Playing this material live is not about revision for me, it is about finishing something we started – writing, recording, performing. Three parts of a whole. A salmon cycle. It’s like going home.”
