----------

Thursday 15 November - Robin 2, Bilston

==============================================
UNIVERSAL JAPAN - ALL A&M RELEASES REISSUED AS FACSIMILE CDS
==============================================

A splendid package of LP facsimile CD reissues of all 9 of the A&M Strawbs albums in an attractive slipcase, with all original inserts etc. included, along with a Japanese booklet with sleeve notes and lyrics and mockups of the original Obis on the original Japanese vinyl releases. Very attractive - the track listings are the same as the UK CD releases in 1998 and 2008, though it looks as though the music has been re-transferred from analogue master tapes and remastered by Universal Tokyo - repoirtedly the best sounding Strawbs CDs to date!

For more details and comments see the 2018 reissues page at:
