I know Stephen can’t comment on his recent projects and I understand and respect that. But my guess would be that one of them is UK’s first album.
Hi there!! I am so frequently asked about this - I have wanted to do this for at least 15 years believe it or not - but the multitrack tapes cannot be found. It would be a dream for me to revisit it - but let's hope the tapes turn up one day...... SWT

Who knows... maybe in the near future those tapes will show up “in the dead of night.”

That’s one of the nice things about being old age pensioner - I too have a mountain of new acquisitions, but it’s more of a “what’s new that needs another listen” pile as opposed to your mountain. :smokin!!!

Today some Drastic Plastic has found it's way into my Oppo and the Plastic is Drastically good!
Probably been a couple of decades since I've played this but on the up side as much as I remember loving it (along with all the Bebops and the Bills) with the 5.1 mixes it's like Deja vu all over again for the first time only better! I know it is probably to much to expect but I hope Live! In The Air Age gets the Deluxe treatment in 5.1 (or even a 2.0 Deluxe 96/24 upgrade would be welcome) along with Bill's Red Noise, anything after that would just be gravy (y) I am Up to Dangerous Stranger so far and really digging it :dance

Got my confirmation too
Just hope I don’t get whacked for import charges as I did on the last two BBD boxes I ordered
When I lived in BC, I never really minded paying the $1 or 2 of tax if I bought a cd...it was the $5 "processing" fee that the post office charged that really got my back up.
