⊗⇑⊗    A 2019 double 200g vinyl reissue of XTC’s masterpiece from 1982.
While looking for the (still ‘lost in the archives’) multi~track tapes to enable Steven Wilson to undertake new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album, the original half~inch master tapes were discovered and used as the source from which engineer John Dent cut new lacquers for this double 200g vinyl edition.
⊗⇑⊗    Includes lyric sheet.
⊗⇑⊗    Originally issued as a now sold out deluxe vinyl set, this standard edition is the fifth in the XTC vinyl reissue series (joining Black Sea, Skylarking, Apple Venus and Wasp Star).
⊗⇑⊗    An album which set standards on its release sounds, if anything, even better now.
