¶ This fifth release in Edsel s series of Deacon Blue reissues collects up all the songs and recordings, originally issued on Riches , Ooh Las Vegas and Walking Back Home , that do not belong on any of the core parent albums. These songs were not associated with any of the studio albums so the band has created this new casebound book compilation that they have called The Rest .
¶ Starting with the band s biggest singles chart success, the Bacharach & David EP , the collection takes in the three new tracks added to the 1994 hits compilation Our Town (another # 1 Double Platinum success) and the b-sides from the singles, along with the seven new songs on 1999 s old and new release Walking Back Home , the three new songs on 2006 s Singles package and two live b-sides.
¶ The DVD features the promo videos while the booklet features a newly-written note by Ricky Ross, all the lyrics to his songs, and ephemera and photos from his own collection.

¶ Deacon Blue are a Scottish pop band formed in Glasgow during 1985. Their name was taken from the title of the Steely Dan song "Deacon Blues". The current line-up of the band consists of vocalists Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh, keyboard player James Prime and drummer Dougie Vipond.
¶ The band released their debut album, Raintown on 1 May 1987 in the United Kingdom. Their second studio album, When The World Knows Your Name (1989) topped the UK Album Charts for two weeks, and included "Real Gone Kid" which became their first UK top ten single. After releasing further albums in 1991 and 1993, they split up in 1994. Five years later, the band held a reunion gig and this led to a new album, Walking Back Home, with the band now working on a part-time basis; they continue to release new albums, their latest being in September 2012.

Biography by Craig Harris
¶ Taking their name from a Steely Dan song, Deacon Blue are one of the best unknown bands in Scotland. Formed in 1985, Deacon Blue performed their first concert as the opening act for The Waterboys' premier show in England. With the vocals of singer/songwriter Ricky Ross backed by jazz and soul-inspired melodies, the group recorded several British hits in the late '80s. Their success, however, failed to carry over to American audiences. Frustrated by their inability to secure international popularity, the group disbanded in the summer of 1994. Although he launched a solo career, Ross had no greater success than he had as frontman for Deacon Blue. In May 1999, the group re-formed for a series of concerts in Great Britain and Europe. As of November 1999, the group featured Ross and other original bandmembers bassist Ewen Vernal, guitarist Graeme Kelling, keyboardist James Prime, and drummer Dougie Vipond, along with second vocalist Lorraine McIntosh (who had become Ross' wife after joining the band). Their first new album in five years, the ballads collection Walking Back Home, was released that year, and the full-length studio album Homesick followed in spring 2001. Guitarist Kelling died of pancreatic cancer in June 2004; Deacon Blue nevertheless vowed to carry on and continued to make intermittent festival appearances through the end of the decade. During 2012 the band scheduled a nationwide tour in celebration of their 25th anniversary and went on to release their seventh album The Hipsters -- produced by Paul Savage (King Creosote, Malcom Middleton, Mogwai) -- later that year.

Altered Images: Jim's career began properly as a session musician on an Altered Images tour of the U.S.A in 1980. Altered Images, famous for their singer Clare Grogan's voice on such hits as "Happy Birthday" (no 2, U.K hit), "I Could Be Happy", "See Those Eyes" and latterly a smash U.S top ten with "Don't Talk to Me about Love" finished a successful tour by splitting up. A disillusioned Grogan wanted to continue her acting success on Gregory's Girl by pursuing a role on the next Bill Forsyth film named Comfort and Joy. Manager Gerry McElhone and brother Johnny McElhone were ahead of the game, forming and signing (in a week) the band Hipsway. Prime considered joining but made way for his erstwhile competitor Craig Armstrong. He claims to have played to 200,000 strong crowd at glasgow Hampden Stadium. Impressive as Hampden Stadium only holds 50,000 spectators!
Born: 13 May 1964, Cumnock, East Ayrshire, Scotland
