Richard Bishop has suggested the possibility of vinyl reissues of some of the early SCG albums in recent interviews. It didn't sound as though anything was in the works, just that it was a consideration.

Seriously seconding this opinion. The prices people are charging for old SCG stuff is criminal.

I interviewed Alan Bishop in college and asked him about this. Unfortunately, he said he felt that it was always more worthwhile for the band to release new music and spend their money that way then go back and make more presses of old stuff. While I greatly respect that, it surely is a bummer for those of us who didn't have a chance to buy the music then.

It is a such a shame and a wonder that the early Sun City Girls albums have not been re-released. I Have much of the music on mp3-sourced from vinyl, but I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to see a series of CD releases. Does anyone familiar with the band or situation have any information regarding future possibilities. This is way too important of a band not to reach younger ears.
