This 10" vinyl release (12/03/2021) was conceived at the start of 2020 and in fitting with the year was plagued with Spinal Tap style problems, from multiple artwork changes, guitar tracks that kept going missing in the studio and the inevitable pressing plant delays it’s a miracle it got here but it’s a stately classy UNDENIABLE piece of work from a living legend.
