Actual release date was 18 August 1978. I know coz my mate Dave got me a copy from Small Wonder Records a day before release and then stupidly date stamped it for me. Cheers mate!

Judging from the label design this is a mid-60's re-issue

Pretty futile judging which press on size of cover as they were hand cut on guillotine and judging mine against photos of both so-called presses, pretty haphazardly.

Really good quality. Previous album (I Still Do) was 45rpm also. I have black vinyl version so I can't vouch for coloured vinyl ones.

Really rubbish CD - Love Will Tear Us Apart (1) sounds like a speeded up poor remix with what sounds like someone grating a dinner fork against a metal bedstead during the intro. Goes down hill from there!

Album slightly spoilt by the whimsey of Richard Sinclair's Down on the Farm but the rest is sublime. Summer Lightening must be one of the best rock-disco tracks ever and amazing guitar solo is the icing on the top.

Ripped from a video/dvd by the sound of it. Hard, harsh sound quality. Not a great buy.

Punk-tastic, knock-about rock full speed, full of fun, fastest bass on earth. Now where's my tennis racket and hairbrush?

One of Paul Wellers finest songs ever from his purple-est of periods. Good to have a couple of radio sessions on the disc as well.

Ok it's not pc to like Sham but this has charm and irony - "I Don't Wanna" from the biggest wannabe punk of 'em all.

Still fresh, engaging, involving, enigmatic, grinding, brilliant after all these years. One album from the era I still regularly play.

Gillian and David are working backwards through their catalogue with vinyl editions. Soul Journey is available now so Revelator isn't far off.

Makes a mockery of the 1st press distinction. Real first press have a sticker saying so. Second batch will never be as sharp as 1st.

Claims to be a limited edition but no evidence of this. Seems to be pressed in repeated batches of 5000.

WA have now come clean that one track ("Baby" I believe) was recorded elsewhere on the tour.

Not much of a "deluxe" edition - 2 live versions and a rather perfunctory interview with Andy Powell. Cover art ruined by the deluxe motifs.
posted a review of Wishbone Ash - Live At Metropolis 16/05/15. 5 months ago
Brave experiment to record to disc totally live. I believe that side 1 is the second take and side 2 the first and only take. Not a brilliant representation of their live sound, not unexpectedly it is a little tentative but a good 'un for ash-heads.

Good mix of old and new songs from the bands near 50 year back catalogue. Muddy and Andy's guitar duelling at its best. Bob Skeat impeccable on bass. Highlights Heavy Weather, Number the Brave, In Crisis, Open Road. On this tour the latter two numbers ... See full review

A really good transfer to vinyl with astoundingly better sound quality than the CD. Cover is a blow-up of the CD and thus a little grainy / wishy-washy. Stand out track is Enigma. Changing Tracks was featured in the soundtrack of a US horror drama ... See full review

Reasonably good transfer to vinyl by Talking Elephant. Cover is a rather glib blow-up of the CD cover. Inners far too tight as is the standard with Talking Elephant.

Rather poor sound in places but better on a decent player. Strange bits with people talking over the music as well. But worth it for a record Mark Birch's playing for the band.

Tale of 2 halves. Side 1 is nearly sublime ending with the wistful, wonderful Wildness. Side 2 is more patchy and out of ideas. Vinyl sound quality is amazing compared to CD and Cassette. Also the artwork needs a 12 inch canvas
