    Thanks for sharing Paul. I’m a casual fan but might go for one of the bundles at those prices. Double coloured vinyl plus double CD and signed print for 30 quid? Bonkers. Although the double tape is also calling to me for some reason…

    I presume by the name of some of the songs,( seaside themed),that this is inspired by the coral island centre in Blackpool?,, Or the old one in Torquay new demolished, I once met the wee guy from ain’t half hot mum standing at the doors of the Blackpool one selling his record back in 79, great wee guy he was,

      I think that was Don Estelle. He had that song Whispering Grass with Windsor Davis. It was by default my first ever record as they threw 7” copies of it from a float at Southend Carnival and I was lucky enough to catch one!

        It was mate ,and he was wearing his outfit,he had a ghetto blaster and was selling his record and tapes, nobody was their and I started talking to him he was really nice,this was 79;,, height of his fame,,,,years later he was turning up in shopping centres in his little outfit,and nobody really knew who he was ,, but was nice to me so rip

    I`ve been a Coral fan since the first single `Shadows Fall` and thought that was it after the last LP `Move Throughj Dawn` so this is a great surprise. Love that single `Faceless Angel` and have ordered a bundle from the band`s shop at better prices than displayed above.

    Hi Paul. There was a Dinked edition. Initial run sold out, more being pressed to stop or limit scalping. Maybe link for this and future Dinked editions. They are def deluxe and would help promote independent stores too.

  6. Ian Hartley says:

    There was a also a “Dinked Edition” of 1000 that sold out almost immediately, then increased by another 500 copies via the “Dinked” indie retail out lets that also sold out last night. The band have a very loyal fan base and their work is never less than interesting, and often quite remarkable. Well worth seeing live too, when we are able. Recommended !
