Thomas Dolby, the man who brought new wave synth-pop to a new level, has a newly-released CD/DVD compilation out. It’s called The Singular Thomas Dolby, spanning his illustrious solo career.
While Dolby is best known in the U.S. for his mega-hit “She Blinded Me With Science” and smash “Hyperactive” — the latter of which includes a real trombone rather than a synth-brass effect — Dolby has also been an astounding keyboardist and accomplished producer for several other projects. [amazonify]B001PSQFZU[/amazonify] He wrote “New Toy” for Lena Lovitch, performed with 80s rockers Def Lepperd and produced musically divers artists like Joni Mitchell, Lea Thompson and George Clinton. I put Lea Thompson in there because I am one of the people who actually LIKED Howard the Duck and found Thompson to be a talented singer for Dolby’s Cube. “Howard’ never got a fair shake from the Academy (yes, the same “Academy” that thought Julia Roberts was so wonderful playing a bland hooker in Pretty Woman; these were dark days for the Oscars).
Fans of Dolby will be happy to find his deeper cuts alongside the classic tracks (although they omitted “Howard the Duck”) and some bonus surprises on the DVD.
As for future plans to tour: according to his official website, details for late 2009 concerts are to come.

Here are the tracks for The Singular Thomas Dolby:
