As was the case when all his other solo albums reached the same age, the twentieth anniversary of Sting‘s 1993 long-player Ten Summoner’s Tales passed with little fanfare back in March 2013. No deluxe editions were released to free up the many exclusive bonus tracks dotted around various CD singles issued at the time.
The album featured Fields Of Gold, If I Ever Lose My Faith In You, and Shape Of My Heart (memorably featured at the end of Luc Besson’s 1994 film, Leon) as well as a re-recorded version of It’s Probably Me, which in its original form was also used in a movie – this time Lethal Weapon 3 from 1992.
Although no deluxe sets were forthcoming, what did happen a few months back, was Universal quietly slipped out a vinyl reissue of the album as part of their Back To Black series. The remastered Ten Summoner’s Tales was pressed on 180g vinyl and the package also provides an MP3 download code. This new pressing includes Everybody Laughed But You which didn’t feature on the North America/Canada releases at the time.
The original LP had become a rather pricey used purchase, probably as a result of a fairly small pressing (relatively speaking) back in 1993.
