The Dead Can Dance Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun LP
Remastered 1987 Album on Vinyl LP!
With Dead Can Dance firmly centered round the core of Brendan Perry and Lisa
Gerrard, they released their third album Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun in the
Summer of 1987, showing both a continued maturity in their sound and rise in
their popularity. Recorded during an intense period of musical and personal
growth for the band, the album's eight songs are split equally between the duo
with the first half being sung by Brendan and the second Lisa.
At the time, Q Magazine described the album as combining "superb voice, ethereal
church choirs, sweeping strings and a brochure of ethnic music: Middle Eastern,
Indian, Moorish, anywhere but London's East End where the couple resided." The
album's cover only adds to the album's aura of mystery with a haunting
photograph of the family grave at the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris of famed
French biologist François-Vincent Raspail.
