Kevin Rowland & Dexys Midnight Runners Too-Rye-Ay, as it should have sounded Vinyl Album
The album has been masterfully remixed by Kevin Rowland, Pete Schwier and original violinist Helen O’ Hara. The album’s cover has also been re-modelled, using the preferred image from the Come On Eileen single sleeve
Kevin Rowland said: "For many years, I’ve been haunted by the mixing on Too Rye Ay’. It wasn’t as good as it should’ve been! and I knew it. It was nowhere near as musical as it should’ve sounded.
When the album was finished, I knew it wasn’t right, and asked the label for more money to do some more mixing. They said, no that’s it, the budget is spent. And I had to live with it. Of course, tracks like Eileen and one or two
others turned out great, but most of the album was not mixed to the standard it should’ve been, and not mixed to the standard the performances and songs deserved.
Finally, we were able to right that wrong this year.
