Steve McQueen is not listed as a 2CD deluxe version was released some time ago.

Yes, and if these expected CD reissues of the other albums are in that same style, then there will be no period extras whatsoever - just the whole album again, solo acoustic from Paddy on his own. No b-sides, remixes, rarities. Even if they are not in the same style and they do contain all the bonus material, that means the debut album will be the only one that doesn't have that treatment, so it seems like a no-win situation. They should be putting out a big CD box set at this point, let's be honest. :?
