    CD Japan have announced they are reissuing shm-sacd’s of Steely Dan’s Pretzel Logic and Countdown to Ecstasy. This is good news as the mini-lp versions originally issued in 2014 are out of print and selling for silly money on fleabay. CD Japan also announced shm-sacd reissues of Songs From the Big Chair, Breakfast in America, Carpenters the Singles 1969-1973, Brothers in Arms, Disraeli Gears, Wheels of Fire, Every Picture Tells a Story and Regatta de Blanc. All titles are dropping on the 24th August.

    Thought I’d better ask on both posts Paul. Is that “leatherette” packaging a limited run or permanent packaging for this reissue? Can’t really buy right now…

    So, it seems are not selling the Grace Jones blu-ray then?
