Does anyone know if Allan's first solo LP has ever been reissued from the original master tapes? The only re-release appears to be the 2005 Magic Records release. Strangely, this seems to consistently sell in the region of £50 on Discogs! I don't have a copy, but have heard some bits on YouTube and they appear to be needle drops, which Magic Records were notorious for if they couldn't get their hands on the tapes.
Yeah I have the Magic one but I also did a needle drop for myself, dropped off Oh Granny (Clarke version) and included Coward By Name to it to get all the RCA Tracks together. That is my go to if I am going to listen to 'arold.
I recall chatting to that French guy at Magic re 'Arold' at the time
- he never even knew about 'Coward By Name' hence he failed to include it as a bonus track on his CD release
the only vinyl LP versions appear to be the original 1972 album which still turns up here in the UK at car boot sales and in charity shops
a UK cassette version was released too
no later CD release as far as I am aware and unless Allan himself has the masters I can't see RCA Victor - now BMG I think - putting it out so only if Allan himself decides to do it the chances at the moment seem slim of a proper CD version
