This has now been reissued by Now Again and is available from their band camp page! This second press has a sticker with solid white text (as opposed to transparent) and a Pitchfork review quote. Hopefully this is the result of all rights being cleared where possible. A great, great compilation.

I just heard “Twilight” playing overhead at my local Chipotle. Now Again brought such a strange audience to these forgotten and unheard gems.

I am not connected to the record company, but I have a number of releases on this label and it strikes me they are always trying to do the right thing. Indeed, in the liner notes on this LP it clearly says "If you have any information about any master recording owners...." to get in touch, so it seems daft for this particular album to be blocked on Discogs.

"Take off your eyes" by Damin Eih, A.L.K. and Brother Clark would fit perfectly in this compilation.

Ofege is pretty stupid for issuing copyright notices. "Hey Im a total no name from no where, people are interested in my music I made 50 years ago? Better stop that right now." Genius.

According to discogs Ofege’s “it’s not easy” was not licensed by the rights holder and Ofege did provide a legal notice to block the release..
