TALK TALK / MARK HOLLIS FANS WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH OUR TALK TALK DOWNLOAD CAPAIGN 2015 :
What? #ItsMyLife is what!
Why? It’s about the MUSIC. The aim of this campaign is to bring the music of Talk Talk to Generation Z; to get it falling on fresh ears, and touching new minds and hearts.
We hope that by getting “It’s My Life” into the charts it will help open up fresh avenues for the rest of their back catalogue to reach a wider audience, so that they too can enjoy the sublime sonic splendour of The Colour of Spring, Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock.
When? Week of 11th October 2015. Late enough to be post-Summer and early enough to avoid the Christmas rush and just after the 30th Anniversary of the UK reissue of It’s My Life (28/09/85).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dQKxVeLUco As of now, this is all the material Hollis has graced the 10s with. It's pretty fascinating even at 55 seconds long (almost a whisper). Found an interesting '98 interview with said prince:http://www.withinwithout.dk/IntSUBAUDIO.html.
I agree with all the plaudits here, a great voice and minimalistic music to accompany his beautiful lyrics, I also love the way he chose his family over the music business. Its also worth checking out one of his former band mates from Talk Talk - Paul Webb and his collaboration with Beth Gibbons from Portishead and their album:- Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Out of Season
The repress is terrible. To start they have a bad off-centering issue which results in surface noise. The metalwork is awful and quality control non existent. Seriously, listening to this album on vinyl is like torture. A real shame than no one gave a fuck about the quality control. They even misspelled stuff and they get the year wrong....2001 instead of 2011. YES - Ba Da Bing's attempt at making this amazing music translate to vinyl is an absolute fucking joke.
