The Blue Nile - A Walk Across The Rooftops album FLAC

A Walk Across the Rooftops is the debut album by Scottish band The Blue Nile, released on 30 April 1984 on Linn Records in the UK and on A&M Records in the US. Although the album was released to little fanfare and was not a big hit on its initial release, it slowly accumulated fans and sales through word of mouth as the years passed, and by the time the follow-up Hats was released in 1989, A Walk Across the Rooftops had sold 80,000 copies. It continued to gather praise when reissued in 2012.

A Walk Across The Rooftops.

Fortunes change for Sheffield's electronic pioneers The Human League in 1980 and Glasgow's The Blue Nile make an album often used to demonstrate the best HiFi systems in 1984. Johnnie and David Hepworth conclude this final series of Long Players series with a look at two more classic albums. One from 1980 changed the fortunes of a Sheffield electronic band and gave us some of the most played tracks in the world (more than 89 million this site streams for Don’t You Want Me alone). Johnnie describes A Walk Across The Rooftops as something which should be heard in its entirety with your full attention, despite the fact that this was the start of the era of taking music with you on the move.

I walk across the rooftops I follow a broken Thread Of white rags falling slowly down Flags caught on the fences. I am in love, I am in love with you I am in love, I am in love with you. I walk across the rooftops The jangle of Saint Steven's bells The telephones that ring all night Incommunicado. The traffic lights are changing The black and white horizon I leave the quiet redstone And walk across the rooftops. I walk across the rooftops On graduation day To look for independence, yeah

How is it known this pressing was made in Ireland? I have a copy and was curious since it doesn't say 'Made in XXXX' that I can see.
