Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
For millions of listeners, Duran Duran defined new wave music in the 1980s thanks to RIO. The British quintet's second album was originally marketed in America like their first, as a New Romantic release, but really took off after it was remixed as dance music (and promoted with some iconic videos). Housed in distinctive Patrick Nagel cover art, the nine songs include such favorites as “Save A Prayer,” the title track and the #3 hit “Hungry Like The Wolf.” The Collectors Edition of this classic album features an extra disc's worth of demos, rarities and remixes (including the versions originally heard on both sides of the Atlantic). Released 35 years ago today, RIO catapulted Duran Duran to stardom, and this is the definitive look at that platinum album.
