David J Reissues

The official date for the two David J re-releases is April 25th.

The cds will differ from earlier incarnations. They are both remastered, feature previously unreleased tracks, and the liner notes are written by David J and Pat Fish, aka the Jazz Butcher. On Glass has a similar but modified cover from the original record (which was also completely different from the Cleopatra release) as well.

According to davidjonline, you can pre-order from Runt Distribution (although you'll notice that they have incorrectly listed Croc Tears as "Doctor Crocodile And The Velvet Cosh.") The cds are released on the Plain Recordings label.

Here are the new track lists:

* presumably "A Card You Cannot Trust" was supposed to follow but it was left out. Not surprising when it came to Cleopatra "typos are our friends" Records. You should see the Passion of Covers Bauhaus Tribute cd they put out around the same time.
** another Cleopatra typo
