UK’s Heavy Soul Records has listened to the masses! After selling out the first pressing of 500 copies of this gem within 2 days of pre-sales, it’s safe to say that this repress was destined to happen.
This time around, the numbers are limited to 100 Pink- and 500 Purple Vinyl LP’s.
Heres some excerpts of the original post a few months back, slightly edited for the 2nd pressing:
This is something else I tell ya..¬† Take everything that’s cool about 60’s sounds, add an extra spoonful of UK, and you’ve got Paul Orwell.¬† Man, I’m telling you; this guy’s got it right, allright! Think mid to late 60’s¬†Phil Spector, The Pretty Things, The Who and all those that pushed the boundaries of rock’n roll back then, blend in some elements of soul and classic R’n B and we’re closing in on what he’s up to. I won’t even start on the production.. Bloody magnificent!
Paul’s got two 7″ out prior to the album, and they’re selling at ri-di-cu-lo-us prices already!¬† If you’re loaded, CLICK HERE, and buy me a copy of his first one, will ya? I’ll send you some brunost, promise!
100 Pink Vinyl / 500 Purple copies only on thick 180g wax with laminated sleeve and no digital download. That’s right. No digital. It’s the 60’s man, what did you expect?¬† Come on!
I know most of you guys are in the US, but don’t let the price stop you. Buy now, or miss out. It’s not at all expensive by European standards, but it will be tomorrow.
Won’t take up too much of your time, as your probably only chance of owning this album is thinning with every letter I type (and you read).¬† Nuff said, now go get it!
Re-pressed on 500 copies on PURPLE- / 100 copies on PINK coloured vinyl, both with laminated sleeve and on 180gram heavyweight vinyl.
The original 500 copy of the heavyweight black vinyl album sold out in less than two days and got rave reviews in the German Rolling Stone as well as Record Collector
