Well, they’re here!
The double vinyl of Love Over Fear ACOUSTIC arrived today and they look and sound amazing. Those of you who bought the 3CD book version of Love Over Fear all loved the acoustic disc and we felt that adding this version of the album to you vinyl collection would give you all a big smile. We’ve gone for something that fits with the original LOF vinyl, the gatefold sleeve printed with the Love Over Fear artwork but with a gorgeous lavender mauve tint. The finish is the same stucco mottled card, inner sleeves have artwork and photos all over them and the discs themselves are a snazzy ’smoke’ blue on 180gm – they look amazing – no expense spared people!
If any of you are in the business you’ll know that vinyl costs have gone up 50% in the past two years and there’s a lead time of 6-7 months for manufacture, which is seriously eye watering. We’ve absorbed a fair bit of that price hike but still had to put it up by £2, but all the recording and artwork costs were paid for in 2020, to only £2 is pretty reasonable.
A lot of people have been asking for stuff on vinyl, and we’ve got some more coming soon and a few other releases are on the cards.
Some of you ill know that “The Rest of Pendragon” has been out of stock now for about 10 years. Well, we’ve just given it a right proper face lift, we drafted in Simon William too get some brand new artwork for the cover and have remastered it for some decent sound levels. I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this, hearing tracks like “Third World in the UK” and “Bird of Paradise”, I forgot how good those songs were – if you’ll forgive me for blowing my own trumpet.
The new version is called “Fallen Dreams And Angels And All The Loose Ends”, we will have CD copies and T-shirts with the artwork in a few weeks. We are also planning a vinyl version which will be out in er…….6 months time!
I am also working on the mini album, it got a bit held up due to me working on a patio with my son, sorry! I’ve just taken my time over the mini album, some guitar work just didn’t sound right so it took weeks to find the right approach, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
