Care - Diamonds & Emeralds (1997)


100% solid-gold new wave with elements of jangle-pop. Care only managed to release a handful of singles during their short time together, so Diamonds & Emeralds -- a compilation of said singles, b-sides, and tracks from an unreleased LP -- is pretty much the only way at this point to hear this truly great band.

Track listing:
1. Diamonds and Emeralds
2. An Evening in the Ray
3. Chandeliers
4. Flaming Sword
5. Cymophane
6. Love Crowns and Crucifies
7. Temper Temper
8. White Cloud
9. Caretaking
10. My Boyish Days
11. Sad Day for England
12. Soldiers and Sailors
13. Whatever Possessed You
14. Such Is Life
15. What Kind of World
16. Nature Prayed Upon
17. Flaming Sword (12" Version)
18. Misericorde
19. Besides 1 and 2
