Just bought Nina and The Dream Tree and Home Grown on Japanese mini LP
presssings. I assume they are legitimate and wondered if there was any
chance of Urban Cowboy appearing on CD at some time in the future.
Andy says... "I’m happy to confirm that Tom appears to have bought copies of Nina and the Dream Tree and Homegrown produced by Strange Days in Japan. These are official licensed copies, though I don’t recall which masters were used for these 2 releases. There is also a matching release of Andy Roberts and the Great Stampede available on the same label. There is currently no version of Urban Cowboy available on CD.
About 5 years ago someone bootlegged it and put out a crappy facsimile version badly mastered from vinyl, and that stopped me releasing it at that time as too many sales would have been lost. As it happens I own the masters and the rights to this album, but because I leased part of it to Sanctuary for inclusion on the Just For The Record compilation it has only recently become available for license once again. As it happens I had a meeting about it (along with several other topics) last Friday, and we may soon be looking to release it in its original form, for the very first time on CD."
