HAPPY FAMILIES [Deluxe 3 CD Media Book Edition] • Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe burst onto the scene in 1982 with the huge hit “Living On The Ceiling”. “Happy Families”, their first album, also features the singles “Feel Me”, “God’s Kitchen”, “I’ve Seen The Word” and “Waves”.

This deluxe media book edition contains 12” mixes and a non-album b-side, as well as nine previously unreleased demos and rehearsals from Neil Arthur’s own collection. CD 3 contains two previously unreleased BBC Radio 1 sessions (featuring two otherwise unrecorded songs) and a BBC live concert.

The book features a new note by Neil Arthur, plus photos and the rarely-printed lyrics.
