Thread Name: Bright Phoebus reissued
Subject: RE: Today, Bright Phoebus...
Can someone with more knowledge than me, explain the release history of the album?

According to this Guardian article only 2000 copies were pressed with half having off centre holes (presumably what nickp refers to).

However, as this page mentions, there was a second pressing sometime. Indeed I have a copy of the later Trailer Highway version that I bought in the late '90s.

I can't remember how much I paid for it, but it was whatever the going rate for new LPs was then, no more than that. I bought it from Decoy Records in Manchester, a now defunct specialist Jazz, Folk, Blues place with very knowledgeable staff, so if ALL vinyl versions were incredibly valuable, I'm sure they'd have noticed.

Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks,

Ed
