    Sorry, I changed the status to out of stock. I just announced this today so I can't put up preorder links until the online guys put their product pages up. I'd expect them to do that in the next day or so.

    Always thought their name was Stealers Wheels. Where I'm from everybody adds an "s" to the end of every word.

    I'm listening to Ferguslie Park right now and I am so very pleased. Archive-quality, beautiful mastering and clarity...I haven't listened to my UK original in quite a while but my impression is your reissue beats it. Oh, geez, I'm hearing Star as I write and it's giving me the thrill I got from it when I bought the stereo 45 in 1973.

    Thank you for doing this. "A standing ovation."

    Thank you- the use of dynamic compression on the originals was very obvious, as were the improvements in inner detail, soundstage size and true dynamics by not applying any in our mastering. I'm very proud of this one, and I hope more folks take a chance on this record! Right now the debut is outselling Ferguslie handily, and IMO Ferguslie is at least as good a record start to finish, maybe even better!

    Ferguslie will also come to hybrid CD/SACD this year.

    True confession time- Stealers 1 has a sticker on the front act says Jerry Rafferty instead of Gerry! It went out before I caught it and it wasn't practical to recall and rebar and resticker 1500 LPs. I did reprint Ferguslie's stickers!

    My website's pre-order button is now fixed with Elusive's page info, and Acoustic Sounds will follow when their page is up.

    I think Ferguslie Park is much better, but I bought both your reissues. Haven't gotten to the debut yet -- I'm listening to an original UK test press of Right Or Wrong. I hope you get to do that one too! Give us a heads up if you do. I'll definitely get one, maybe two copies.

    One of my fave movies. I watch about once a year just to keep myself straightened out on some things.

    Right or Wrong album is my favorite of the three Stealers Wheel albums. And yes, the IR Ferguslie Park is a beautiful purchase sound and packaging all the way. Well I will have to listen to some Stealers Wheel tonight.

    Funny about Right Or Wrong -- allmusic and other music review spots call it a weak last hurrah. I think it's anything but. Love every track.
