Cheers J J, thanks for spreading the word.

Indeed we are reissuing it and it will be out in mid January as you say on Vinyl, CD and Digitally. All tracks were taken from the mastertape (final mixdown tape) which was in very good condition apart from the last track (dreadlocks rebel force) of which only half of it was on the tape for some reason :roll: . Still, we manage to get a good vinyl rip and you can trust us it sounds almost as good as the rest. We had it mastered by Kevin Metcalfe of Soundmasters, who was very surprised when we bought in the tape in its original box as it turned out it was him who did the mastering for the Hitrun UK release, it had all his writing on the back of it! We have got the test presses back and got the fabled 'very good pressing' remark from Kevin, trust me, it sounds CRISP!

All artwork is the same as original, with some slight alterations to the back so we could fit in some sleeve notes, the CD sleeve notes are more extensive. Will get the artwork up in a bit.

More details soon come!
