Dear Friends and music lovers,
Just a brief announcement to let you know that MINIATURES still has plenty of life in it!
It has received its FIRST VINYL REISSUE on 180gm vinyl (limited edition of 800) and can be ordered from Forced Exposure. The cover is beautifully printed and the 24″ x 24″ poster (with mini-artworks by all the artists) is also included, both better quality than the original!
RED VINYL version (limited edition of 200) is also available from Knock ‘Em Dead Records!
Clips can be listened to at both the above sites, which also include excellent – and different – descriptions of the album.
MINIATURES has also been reissued as a replica CD, in a cardboard sleeve, just like a miniature version of the 1980 LP. It has a small version of the original poster folded inside! You may need a magnifying glass to read some of the sleeve notes, but it makes for a fascinatingly detailed musical object. At the moment this is only available in Japan, from Amazon.co.jp and Diskunion.
Imports to other countries of both the above will doubtless appear soon.
The Miniatures 1+2 double CD is always available at a very reasonable price from Cherry Red Records as well as Amazon and other good quality sellers.
