Wild Birds : Best Of 1985-95
CD on Beggars Banquet
Cat No: BBL2019CD , Stk Ref 22160

Released on: 10 April 2000

As the singer of Bauhaus and with a solo career stretching back 15 years, Peter Murphy has been one of the leading lights on the USA alternative scene since 1979. "Wild Birds" is a long overdue "Best Of" compilation from Peter Murphy, covering work from his five solo albums and includes most of his "post modern" single hits along with choice cuts from "Deep", "Cascade" and "Love Hysteria". An unheralded pioneer and aficionado of world music before it became a marketing term, the tangents and depth to Murphy’s music are easier to appreciate with hindsight
