LTM are pleased to announce an extended CD reissue of Shiver, the debut album by Swedish pop sophisticate Virna Lindt, originally released by the Compact Organisation in 1983. Written and produced by Virna Lindt and Tot Taylor, the acclaimed Shiver album offers 12 slices of chic, Cold War pop informed by 1960s spy thriller soundtracks and musique concrete, including the singles 'Attention Stockholm' and 'I Experienced Love'. The album has been digitally remixed and re-modelled from the original mastertapes, and now sounds even more immaculate than before. The new edition of Shiver also features bonus track 'The Windmills of Your Mind', a rare Michel Legrand cover version from the Thomas Crown Affair originally recorded for the Crepuscule movie compilation Moving Soundtracks. The CD also features a deluxe 12 page booklet featuring original artwork and detailed dossier on Virna Lindt.

This was the debut release from Ms. Lindt, who was one among a coterie of artists signed by the Compact Organization. I purchased it on vinyl when it was first issued and enjoyed it at the time. Surprisingly, it still sounds as fresh today as it did back then.
It doesn't get more adventurous than this LP. Attention Stockholm and Underwater Boy are insanely great pop songs. I must warn you that her second album Play/Record is pretty unremarkable. Watch out!
I have to disagree with Marteen --- this is the exact same track listing as the original Compact 'Shiver' release. But otherwise, the prior reviewers are right on the money - cool, clean, fun swede pop with integrity. Gotta love it. Some of the tracks have been remixed a little from the original which would be fine if the old versions were here too - they ain't and I for one (of three) miss them. Now, when is play/record going to be CDized?
