This is probably a stupid question...

There's an old eighties, british group called THE ESSENCE. I only know of two songs by them titled The Cat and A Mirage.

The question is, did they have any actual albums come out? I have a 12 inch single with these two songs but it doesn't say anything about the songs coming from a forthcoming album.

It's killing me not to know.

Help would be much appreceiated(sp?).

...yes I DID do a google, yahoo, ask jeeves... you name it search, it's just one of those obscure groups that if you never heard them, you'd NEVER hear them type things.

Thanks in advance...

They have a listing at allmusic.com

I'd link to it, but you need to register to see it.

I did a quick search on Napster (I love Penn State's digital contracts!) and I found four albums by them. I see both songs listed, so I'm pretty sure this is what you are looking for.

Albums:
Purity
A Moment of Trust
Ecstacy: Nothing Lasts Forever
Dancing in the Rain: The best of the Essence

Napster has all these albums coming out after 1995. It looks like they are re-issues.

Do they sound like the Cure? If they do, then I think I've found them.

Ah forget it. I am not an allmusic member. Went to allmusic.com and searched on The Essence.... Got results

Yes Roy, they sound exactly like the Cure, only not as whiny. Check them out.

Thanks.

Sorry. I don't have a lot of words for this one. Lou Reed, Velvet Underground Leader and Rock Pioneer, Dead at 71 (rollingstone.com) Edit: My favorite rendition of Sweet Jane. This really has bummed me out.
