A deluxe version of XTC's 1982 classic, English Settlement.


* 2 x 33rpm, 200g heavyweight vinyl
* 12" 16 page booklet with song notes by band members
* Lyric sheet
* 2016 cut from original half-inch master sources
* CD mastered from the same original master sources
* All contents packaged in a sturdy slipcase

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 source masters from which engineer John Dent cut new lacquers for this heavyweight vinyl edition.

Could someone explain to me, are these half inch master tapes better than the "still 'lost in the archives'" multi track tapes? Or would a remaster based on the lost multi track tapes be more preferred to this?

And the tapes for Skylarking I guess are missing I take it...I would of really liked to hear a remix of that album especially. But I guess not. Oh well.....
