  • Design 50th Anniversary edition

Design went on to become the most televised group in the UK in the 1970’s appearing on more than fifty TV shows with major stars such as Morecambe and Wise, Benny Hill, Tommy Cooper and The Two Ronnies. The group released five albums and thirteen singles, toured with Gilbert O’Sullivan and the Hollies, and starred in cabaret and at the London Palladium, before finally disbanding in late 1976.
Their first album is now a cult classic and has been described as ‘the Holy Grail of soft rock’. Music critics have hailed its ‘classy mainstream pop numbers with intricate and appealing harmonies and an interesting psychedelic twist’ and ‘flawless massed vocal harmonies.
This special 50th Anniversary Expanded Edition released on 19/3/2021 features the original album and twelve previously unreleased bonus tracks, including six alternate takes and demos from the original recording sessions and six new tracks recorded by group members since leaving Design. Also in a 6 page digi pack with a 14 page booklet packed full of rare photos and new interviews with the group. Don’t miss this golden opportunity to rediscover the soaring harmonies of the grand Design.
