    Which edition is that? I'm guessing the original UK one.

    Phil Morris

    Yes, it's the original UK edition from 1989.

    The only other CD I have had turn bronze like this is Tony's Soundtracks which is inscribed on the disc's center with "Made in UK by PDO." Through online research, I found that it's common for discs manufactured in the UK by PDO between 1988 - 1993 to have this problem. Smallcreep's Day, though, does not say made in UK by PDO.

    The funny thing is, Soundtracks turned bronze more than 10 years ago but still plays fine. Even though I have all of Tony's releases, I rationalized buying the recent "Banks Vaults" box set partly as an excuse to have a better copy of Soundtracks.

    This thread inspired me to give Smallcreep's Day a long overdue listen. I love the album.

    When I pulled out my CD, I was disappointed to find that the 30 year old silver disc is starting to turn light brown/rust colored. I know this probably means it is in the early stages of CD Rot and will eventually stop playing. For now, fortunately, it plays fine. As a back-up --- since a replacement CD isn't available --- I was able to successfully rip the tracks from the CD onto my hard drive as both WAV and FLAC files.

    Yet another good reason for Mike to follow Ant's lead and give this album a well deserved re-release with all the frills of Ant's recent Esoteric clamshell releases. Ant seems to be in favor of re-releasing it ...

    Hello Collfillins. Your first post is being answered by another first timer.

    You are correct. On page 80 of Chapter & Verse Mike says:

    "It was Richmond Rugby Club, some kind of bash. Richard Macphail took the three of us into the middle of the rugby pitch and said, 'Ant wants a word', and he told me."
