PINK VINYL HAS ENTERED MY LIFE: The Go-Go’s 1981 Beauty and the Beat Album Remastered and Expanded

The Go-Go’s double platinum debut album, Beauty and the Beat, has been digitally remastered and expanded for a 30th Anniversary Edition to be released May 17 by Capitol/I.R.S.

Beauty and the Beat was the Go-Go’s debut album, released in 1981 by I.R.S. Records. The album hit #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, and was the first album to top the chart by an all-female band that wrote and performed its own songs.

The commemorative edition will be available in a 2 CD package and in two digital collections featuring the remastered original album plus previously unreleased concert audio recordings from 1981. You can find the CDs here on Amazon.com. The remastered original album will be reissued on pink vinyl with replicated original artwork.

The Go-Go’s will hit the road this summer on their Ladies Gone Wild tour, a national U.S. trek with Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin and Kathy Valentine. The tour will include a very special Los Angeles homecoming show at the Greek Theater on August 17, Belinda’s birthday. You can find more information about the tour on the Go-Go’s website.
