patio74 "Dad, I am SHOCKED and actually a little impressed that you have the original 1981 British pressing of Duran Duran's debut on the Harvest label," exclaimed Art as I honored a request for a dose of double-D. "Most people know the 1983 American reissue, but you, my friend, are a better man than I thought."

"Why thank you, Art," I responded, silently noting that he was acting a little strange, and maybe affecting a hint of a British accent. Was this one of his previous lives leaking through again? Perhaps the one I have come to call #1980sBloke? But then I remembered that after they've reached the one-year mark, babies have a tougher time accessing previous lives. So I pressed him a little and asked what differentiated the American and European versions of the album.

"For starters, I would have known right as you put the needle on the record, because the American reissue kicks off with 'Is There Something I Should Know?'" he began, and then sang a sampling of the song.

"'Please, please tell me now' ... If me da is a tosser!"

He then laughed in what was unmistakably a British accent! Bingo!

  •   patio74 "But you're not a tosser, Da," he continued. "Also, in contrast to this LP's cover, the new image positioned each band member equally close to the camera, and demonstrated the variety of looks within the band, from tanned adventurers to rouged androgynes. This reflected the band's teen-focused marketing which promoted the image and personality of individual band members, recognizing that 'everyone is someone's favourite.' My favourite is John! Listen to how that bass bridges the gap between disco and new wave!"

    I was beside myself, reveling in all that Art was revealing as he put down his jingly toy and played air bass to "Planet Earth." But he must have noticed my shock.

    Once again he did that backwards peace sign gesture and told me to "peace off," but I STILL don't know if it was just his sharp accent saying, "piss off" or if it's a way of wishing somebody the opposite of peace, so I asked him.

    "Oh," he said, "aren't we clever? It's both! How about that?! Now maybe someday I'll tell you all about life in dear old blighty in the '80s, but you're clearly not ready to know right now. Now fetch me a pint! I want to listen to Durans in a proper way!"#morningrecordswithart #artspreviouslives #duranduran #durandurandebut #johntaylor #rogertaylor #andytaylor #nickrhodes #simonlebon #artdemandsduranduran 24h
