The first in a series of acoustic reworkings of classic Church albums.
Of Skins And Heart was The Church's 1981 debut, and featured the band's first major hit "The Unguarded Moment". Steve Kilbey has reimagined the album for the 2020's as a predominantly acoustic album.
Steve's unadorned guitar and vocals grab the listener from the outset and never let go until the final ringing notes of "Don't Open The Door To Strangers". These are brilliant performances of classic songs from a truly amazing songwriter.
The track "Fighter Pilot...Korean War" on the original album is replaced here with "Sisters" and "Tear It All Away" originally from the Too Fast For You/Tear It All Away double single.
