Is there a problem between Matt and the label? Why else hasn't this absolute gem of a record been reissued yet?


December 25, 2018
An epic release deserving a reissue, sounds amazing even today. Johnny Marrs best guitar. The Flugal Horn in Lung Shadows is just so hypnotic


December 25, 2018
While even the worst releases get a vinyl reissue it seems very hard to reissue this classic. How hard can it be?


December 4, 2018
Hey Epic. Where is the re-issue????!!!!!!!!!!!! The time is now.


March 30, 2018
Mine came with full size promo poster, not shrink wrapped.

Wonderful album--can anyone comment as to the sound quality of the original UK pressing?


March 17, 2017
Any chance of this classic album being reissued????!!! I can't live without it!
