--

LTM presents the belated full release of Short Stories For Pauline, the legendary 'lost' fourth album by cult Manchester group The Durutti Column.

Originally recorded by Vini Reilly in Brussels for Factory Benelux in 1983, the 14 track album features several exquisite pieces including College, A Room In Southport and, most notably, Duet. Recorded with Tuxedomoon viola player Blaine L. Reininger, this poignant instrumental proved -ironically- to be the downfall of the album, after Factory director (and Durutti manager) Tony Wilson insisted that Duet form the basis of an entire neo-classical album. As a result, Duet became Without Mercy in 1984, and Short Stories For Pauline was shelved.

Although individual tracks have appeared on several compilations, notably highbrow Crépuscule collection Hommage A Marguerite Duras, this is the first time the original 'FBN 36' album has appeared in its entirety. With new artwork prepared with the help of Crépuscule designer Benoît Hennebert, this set comes with Live In Bruxelles 13.8.1981 (originally release as LTMCD 2499) as a bonus CD.
