I'm curious as to your thoughts on the quality of the CD - I've ordered it from Amazon - like yourself to replace a vinyl copy purchased around 1988 or so, but according to the reviews there it seems to have been lifted straight from vinyl.

Cheers. Another highly political band in a Marxist vein was of course the Three Johns...

Well there is nothing wrong with the CD version I have got, can't say that the quality has ever bothered me.

The CD also comes with 3 extra tracks - Inspiration, Easter Rising and Johnny I Hardly Knew You - of which I would say "Inspiration" is easily the pick.


Thanks again, that's sort of reassuring. Already ordered so I'm awaiting it's arrival with interest.


Only heard a few of the tracks.

Tell me, is the tune for 'Lenin in Europe' as cheesy as the lyrics? Loved to hear it.

PS - not being sarky. I loved 'Whistling in the Dark'. Great song.

Dr Paul Stott

Actually its not cheesy at all - don't worry its not as if the Redskins had written it.

It manages to come across as quite dark and atmospheric.....

The Cherry Red reissue CD was indeed mastered from a crappy vinyl copy, lots of pops and clicks.
