The remixes were done during the original album sessions at Mick Harris' Black Box studio in the Custard Factory in Birmingham, UK.

Mastered for vinyl September 2017.

Edition of 300 copies.

James Plotkin's superb vinyl mastering and the exceptionally good pressing make these versions at least as compelling as the album on Avant.

Atmospheric, dark and detailed, an absorbing listen - nice live feel and an inspired idea to release the demos. Plotkin for president!
