Eddy Grant Gonna Rock Down To Electric Ave on Tour and with new Hits CD

(PR) Eddy Grant has entered into an exclusive licensing arrangement with Universal Music Enterprises for the distribution of that catalogue so fans may access those recordings as he returns to the stage. The Reparation World Tour reaches the U.S. August 1-28 and October 2-30. The first album to be issued under the deal is The Very Best Of Eddy Grant The Road To Reparation (Mercury/UMe), released July 8, 2008.

Spanning his solo career from 1979 to 2005--from his second album, Walking On Sunshine, to his latest, Reparation--the collection includes 11 classic tracks selected by Grant himself. Notable among them are his two biggest hits in the U.S. (the #2 pop "Electric Avenue" and Top 30 pop "Romancing The Stone") and three U.K. Top 10s ("Gimme Hope Jo'Anna," "Do You Feel My Love" and #1 "I Don't Wanna Dance).

Born in Guyana but raised in North London, Grant founded The Equals, in the mid-'60s the first multicultural pop-rock outfit to achieve global acclaim ("Baby Come Back").

Over the years, Grant's classic works have been covered by artists as diverse as Prince Buster, Jaheim, UB40, Pato Banton, and The Clash. Now the original returns, both on stage and with The Very Best Of Eddy Grant The Road To Reparation.
