Album of the Day

Notorious (Deluxe)

Coming three years after the U.K. band's last studio album, NOTORIOUS reflected several changes to Duran Duran; drummer Roger Taylor was out, and guitarist Andy Taylor was on his way out. The 1986 collection also signaled a new musical direction, with the group employing more muscular, R&B-derived grooves – a change facilitated by producer (and Chic co-founder) Nile Rodgers. For all that, it was business as usual in the sales department, with the set reaching #12 on the U.S. album chart on the strength of such singles as “Skin Trade,” “Meet El Presidente” and the smash hit title track. The 2-CD Deluxe Edition of NOTORIOUS adds several single versions and B-sides, remixes of album tracks and the live “Duran Goes Dutch” E.P.
