"Sadly nostalgic of your loneliest days, gently disturbing music that sends your mind adrift on an ocean of reflection." -- Bside Magazine
More than a reissue, it's a restoration! This new mix of Black Tape For A Blue Girl's ethereal, evocative and existential 1987 second album flows upon its haunting thread, revealing the heart of its lush dreamscape atmospheres. Sue-Kenny Smith's lovely British vocals float upon Sam Rosenthal's electronic and organic darkwave, tempting within their lush mystery. Oscar Herrera's passionate, powerful voice propels the majority of the tracks with "the sawdust scatter" capturing a late-80s goth rock aura. Rosenthal's precise new mix -- sourced from the original half-inch 8-track tapes -- highlights an album even more enchanting than when first released.
"After 36 years," Rosenthal reflects. "Mesmerized finally matches the way it has always played in my head. I remixed the album from scratch. It's rich, detailed and distinct. With eq and much more advanced computer mixing possibilities (and many more years of experience) I restored the album to as good as it could have been back in the day. The new CD and LP returns sumptuousness to Mesmerized; it's the same album yet so different from what I remember. Everything is more present; the vocals engulf you in their despair, desire and allure."
The Bob wrote, "Rosenthal's vision is bleak to be sure, packed with repeated images of physical and emotional torture, loneliness and imprisonment."
It's a consuming tapestry of melody and mood, finding hints of beauty as romantic love crashes upon the rocks of desolation and dejection.
