Bright Phoebus to get vinyl re issue at last!!!

Bright Phoebus, Lal and Mike Waterson’s 1972 folk-noir masterpiece, has long been recognised as one of British music's legendary lost records. Following the parting of ways of The Watersons and freed from the strictures of folk orthodoxy, Lal and Mike Waterson’s love of words allowed them to serve the needs of their songs in ways that weren’t possible when singing already written songs.

Featuring performances from Lal, Mike and Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, Ashley Hutchings, Dave Mattacks, Tim Hart and Maddy Prior, amongst others, the album is now recognised as a forward-thinking benchmark for the genre. Fans include Arcade Fire, Stephen Malkmus, Billy Bragg, Jarvis Cocker, Richard Hawley – the latter two performed the record themselves in 2013 on the Bright Phoebus Revisited tour.

Domino are pleased to reissue Bright Phoebus – Songs By Lal And Mike Waterson on 4th August, this will be the first time since its release the album will be widely available. Additionally under the supervision of David Suff (Topic/Fledging) and Marry Waterson (daughter of Lal), the album has been remastered from the original tapes.

Standard LP
Gatefold sleeve
8 page large format booklet featuring photos and essay by Pete Paphides

4th August I cannot wait!!!

Fucking cool or what. The guy who had been sitting on the tapes snuffed it, so his family passed them on. Which is fair dos.

I am so excited that I will finally get to own a copy. Only 1000 pressed originally, and 500 of those were unplayable due to being off centre pressings. I have ordered the single album version and I am patiently waiting for it to arrive.

I am very interested.
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

Good article in this months Mojo about it. Its one of those mythical lost releases that actually lives up to the hype.
And the cover always makes me smile-put it next to Larks' Tongues, and it brightens your whole day!
