Digitally remastered reissue of 1978 album, includes new artwork with extensive sleeve notes & previously unseen photos. Black and White was the last Stranglers album to even flirt with the socio-sexual shock troop imagery which fired their first records; with the live X-Cert album rounding off 1978 with a final flurry of gruffness, the band was now free to experiment beyond even the most indulgent fan's wildest imaginings. Black and White was previewed by the hits "Five Minutes" and "Nice'n'Sleazy" (self-mythology in a nutshell), and was swiftly followed by one of the band's finest moments, a murderously slowed-down version of Bacharach/David's "Walk on By." And with the extravagant Toiler On The Sea, The Stranglers finally hit upon their perfect new sound. Mainly instrumental and surprisingly atmospheric, Toiler caught the band flying off into almost uncharted territories in the way they had hinted at in the closing sections of Rattus Norvegicus. The Stranglers were closet jazz freaks and the cat was out of the bag. The track rambled on and on about nothing in particular, but dripped with gravitas. This CD release of the album contains a selection of 6 bonustracks: Mean To Me, Shut Up, Sveridge, Old Codger and Tits, but it was only the night club jazz version of "Walk On By" which remained in the memory. It showed what the band could do if they had a decent tune to work with and demonstrated potential future directions which they went on to exploit with some finesse. Cornwell's guitar and singing were inspired and lifted the band to whole new levels of achievement.
