Did Jeepster also reissue all of the vinyl including this record in 2014 when Matador did? I purchased a copy of this record on vinyl from someone here and they sent me a repress with that obi looking strip that all of the Matador reissues got. This strip also includes a pic of Storytelling. I'm very pleased since it matches the rest of my pressings, but never knew a 2014 repressing of Storytelling on Jeepster was an option.

This is supposed to be the original UK press, right?
The lone listing for a UK reissue (https://www.discogs.com/Belle-Sebastian-Storytelling/release/5869722) indicates differentiation from original by "different distribution credit on the back cover". But that's too vague; there are no photos other than the stock cover image for that reissue; and the photo of the back cover on this listing for what should be the original pressing is not clear enough.
Since barcode and runout details are identical for both, we need better evidence of what seems to be the only way to differentiate original from reissue for UK pressings.
As these things tend to go, I would guess that many of the sale items linked to this listing are actually reissues.

A sadly underrated gem for Belle and Sebastian fans that never got the attention it deserved. Having seen the film, I can understand why director Todd Solondz was hesitant to use much of the album – the music here doesn't really fit with the heavy themes in the movie. Still, as simply another Belle and Sebastian album released during what I consider the group's best years (See: If You're Feeling Sinister, Tigermilk, Boy With the Arab Strap, Push Barman to Open Old Wounds), Storytelling is magnificent and sounds as good as its aforementioned counterparts in the group's discography.
