I couldn't agree with John more. Seb I love the way how you give context to the records you release. Other reissue labels too often just put out records as if saying it is a "shaka killer" is enough historical context. With all these older day records there is an historical context out of which they came. I think it is very important to listen to them with that context in mind - A song recorded in 1979 or 1982 or whenever comes from that time and speaks to that time. As modern listeners I think it is important to take that into account. My two cents.

Keep up the inspiring works!

Seb,

Who are the players of instruments? Given it was recorded at Easy Street I presume some familiar UK players were present.

Thanks for the killer release!

Hello all,
and rejoice, this is the last time I'm bothering everybody with these ! The final part of the Norris Regal interview is now up on the blog.. Thanks for the support, the 12" is stil in shops but sold out distribution-wise, couldn't be happier, and Norris wanted to thank everybody as well --he still can't believe it I think, ha!
Anyway, without further ado:
