XTC Skylarking And 'That' Cover
|The fantastic sounding forthcoming double vinyl release of XTC's SKYLARKING album is being pressed up right now and will soon be in your hands. You know of course that it's cover will be the original one? No,not the last minute drawing of the elysian type couple tooting on their flutes,nice as it was, I mean the ORIGINAL cover,the one that Virgin banned.Quick version goes like this. XTC had sleeve shoot with naked male and female models.Took mock up of sleeve to big store chains in London. They went all coy and said they would refuse to stock it, Virgin said that can't be sleeve .XTC had to find a last minute replacement.IE: the one you're familiar with. Till now.|
We're dressing this wonderful sounding double vinyl release in it's original sleeve, the one that was planned to clothe it way back when. We're sure that folks wont be so prudish in this, the 21st century, and that you'd like the bands history put right visually,and sonically, so to speak.Here is a peak of the real cover to this classic set.You'll be able to buy this, the best SKYLARKING as a deluxe large format double vinyl board book with copious notes from Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding, or as the standard double vinyl gatefold. Whichever one suits your pocket or purse.
