The definitive album of Eighties pop success – and excess! – Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s Welcome To The Pleasuredome – featuring Relax, Two Tribes and The Power of Love – was released 30 years ago this week. And Union Square Music is celebrating its anniversary by shipping out a new, ultra-deluxe box set edition, exactly 30 years after the original hit the record stores. Released in association with PledgeMusic, the box set quickly became the fastest-selling catalogue project to date on Pledge’s direct-to-fan platform. Housed in a 12″-sized, 2.5″-deep box, Inside The Pleasuredome contains:

Frankie Goes To Hollywood producer, Trevor Horn: “I’m very impressed with the product Union Square Music has come up with to celebrate the album’s anniversary. It has every element and every touch-point of the original Frankie spirit – the music, the remixes, the videos, the artwork – but in a completely refreshed and upgraded 2014 style.”

Curator/compiler, Ian Peel: “This is the 30th anniversary of what is generally regarded as one of the most important albums of the classic pop era, so we wanted to make it bigger, more luxurious and more detailed than ever before. To quote the album’s original call-to-action: THEY CAME, THEY FOUGHT, THEY SAID!”

PledgeMusic’s Julian Huntly: “Inside the PleasureDome is a thoroughly researched and beautifully designed box set and the campaign run by Union Square has really connected with the fans. We are happy to have had this opportunity to work with the team at the label and proving how well PledgeMusic’s direct-to-fan model works for catalogue releases. ”

Union Square Music’s Peter Stack: “This has been our first release in collaboration with PledgeMusic and we’re thoroughly impressed, both with the sophistication of their online platform and the company’s grasp of our audience and the specific requirements of the direct-to-fan model.”
