BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
“Ruby Red” was the first single taken from British singer/songwriter Marc Almond’s third studio album Mother Fist and Her Five Daughters. The single debuted on the U.K. singles chart on October 18, 1986 peaking at #47.
As with my previous Marc Almond posts this single did not appear on the recently released Marc Almond box set Trials Of Eyeliner (The Anthology 1979/2016).
The track listing is incorrect on the back of the sleeve this edition has a white sticker indicating it is an alternate edition containing the Re-Edited And Re-Structured mixes.
