After several successful years as pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage return in 1984 with several new band members and a new direction. Steve Strange and Rusty Egan welcome Steve and Gary Barnacle, along with Andy Barnett, to create their new sound. Beat Boy takes a harder-edged dancefloor approach, adding industrial sounds and boosting the focus on guitars and beats. Beat Boy was originally released in select territories on a 'Special Cassette Remix', taking most of the album versions and remixing or extending the songs exclusively for the tape format. This new reissue from the original master tape presents this special version for the first time on the CD format as the 'Cassette Remix Edition'. In addition, five bonus tracks have been appended, including the 'Extended Dance Mix' of Beat Boy, originally only available on a rare promotional 12" single. A previously unreleased 7" version of the sublime Yesterday's Shadow is also included. The CD booklet includes a recent interview with Steve Barnacle giving a track-by-track commentary on the making of the album.
