It's so annoying these sort of things only come out on vinyl. I'd snap up a CD version.

Great band with fantastic singles. "Streets of Broken Glass" and "Seasons of the Year" are perfect synth songs. Look forward to this release!

The demand just isn't there for me to do a CD run of this, but if its any consolation it will be available on all the major digital sites (itunes, Spotify, Google, etc..) in the next couple weeks.

sad to read this + quite surprising... CDs are so much cheaper to manifacture + to distribute (not to mention way more environmentfriendly).
I can't believe that everyone is just asking for a vinyl release, as you can read in multiple threads here, there is still demand for CDs.

It is a ridiculous claim. I've seen so many people online complaining about there being no CD release for that upcoming Yazoo collection. I think people assume CD is dead because of the decline, but people of our generation do often still prefer a CD counterpart. Vinyl is a novelty for me, it's fun and nostalgic but I'm not one of those that find charm in surface noises and distortions. I want clear, clean sound on CD, and not a compressed download either. But let them alienate the market by discriminating against the superior format. It will come around again at some point, it always does. At this point, it all feels like there's a grand scheme to destroy the CD. I hope it fails.

This is a must have. The quality is ok but the cover and the sleeve are both fantastic. I prefer to have unreleased music on any format than someone re-issuing a music that's already on CD.

"I prefer to have unreleased music on any format"

Did you lose your ability to read? The dude who made this happen preferred to release it as vinyl. Scott could have done it maybe but he was likely busy re-issuing some 60's junk. :lol:
