Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret

Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret is the debut studio album by English synth-pop duo Soft Cell, released on 27 November 1981 by Some Bizzare Records. The album’s critical and commercial success was bolstered by the success of its lead single, a cover version of Gloria Jones’s song “Tainted Love”, which topped the charts worldwide and became the best-selling British single of 1981. In the United States—as a result of the single’s success, the album had reported advance orders of more than 200,000 copies. The album spawned two additional top-five singles in the UK: “Bedsitter” and “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye”.
