What if Depeche Mode just wanted to dance? Wonderland is the classic 1986 debut of Erasure, formed by songwriter synth player Vince Clarke and singer Andy Bell. Produced by Flood, Wonderland is accessible and catchy synth pop, but also sharp, emotionally charged and redolent of heartache. Erasure delivered massive hits in the U.K. and the U.S. with radio and club staples such as 'Oh L'Amour' and 'Who Needs Love Like That'.

Intervention Records is thrilled to announce its 30th anniversary vinyl reissues of Erasure's 1980's classics Wonderland and The Circus. These two 1st Wave 1980's hits are the latest LPs to comprise IR’s ongoing “(Re)Discover Series.”


Wonderland is Erasure's 1986 debut. Produced by Flood, Wonderland is accessible and catchy synth pop, but also sharp, emotionally charged and redolent of heartache. Wonderland delivered massive hits in the UK and the US with radio and club staples like “Oh L’Amour,” "My Heart ... So Blue" and “Who Needs Love Like That.”


Erasure is groundbreaking songwriter/synth player Vince Clarke and singer Andy Bell. Prior to forming Erasure, Clarke wrote nearly all of songs on Depeche Mode’s iconic first album, Speak and Spell, before moving on to form Yazoo with Alison Moyet (Yaz in the US). Remarkably Clarke found Andy Bell by placing an ad in a UK newspaper. The flamboyant Bell was among pop’s first openly gay stars, and his high-pitched voice has a soulful power that’s an arresting complement to Clarke’s inspired synth melodies.


The album is mastered 100% AAA analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from UK-sourced analog tapes- the UK stereo/production master for Wonderland. The bass foundation is fully restored to make this new Intervention reissue the definitive listening experience for this classic LP!


"Wonderland is sourced from beautifully preserved 30-ips tapes that say both "Master" and "production copy." You be the judge! What is certain is that these are the best and perhaps the only existing analog tapes for this classic release! When mastering this LP we compared what we were hearing from the tapes to original US and UK LPs. Mastering notes included with the tapes show that the original LP was bass-limited from 40Hz down. Of course we restored the wonderfully full bass response that's present on the tapes, and mastered wide open with no compression applied. The result is an alive and pulsing beat with foundation like you've never heard- the best Wonderland has ever sounded!" - Intervention Records


(Re)Discover Series: You know those songs that come up on the radio when you’re driving and you crank up the volume to 11 and sing your lungs out? That’s the spirit of what Intervention’s (Re)Discover Series is all about! Taking these FM classics and presenting them in “like you’ve never heard it before” sound quality so you can get that same blast of energy and excitement on your hi-fi at home. The hallmark of this series will be 100% analog mastering from real analog tapes. Combining superior master sources with the truly full-range mastering chain at Cohearent Audio and RTI’s dead quiet vinyl pressing means that you’ll hear these FM staples with power, majesty and musical detail like it’s the first time.
