About this release

For his 1971 second album, Labi shared arranging and producing duties with Ian Green. The collection of love songs and observational pieces demonstrate Labi’s developing talent, highlights being the hit “Thank Your Lucky Star” and songs like “Not So Long Ago” and “Bless The Telephone”. The 4-page insert includes annotation by Alan Robinson based on his interview with Labi.

This half-speed master edition is presented in its original gatefold sleeve, pressed on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl, featuring an obi strip, and housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

This new edition has been expertly mastered by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering from the original stereo tapes using precision half-speed mastering. Half-speed mastering is a vinyl cutting technique that improves groove accuracy and transient information creating an incredibly detailed stereo image with a natural high frequency response.
