The CD booklet features an expanded version of the original artwork and includes a detailed UK discography and sleeve notes.
The album has been digitally remastered for this release.
Speaking of the 'Outernational' album to Record Collector magazine in 1994 MacKenzie gave his impression of the album "I think it has a glacial beauty. It doesn't always have to be demonstrative. Fire can burn, but so can ice. And that would direct the attention to the lyrical content as well. Some of it had a lot of religious connotations, like "Colours Will Come". I think that it's an emotionally detached album in some ways, but it also has a strong message. Maybe it appeared like I wasn't trying or expressing, or that there was a block. But it wasn't. There was a calmness and a lot of beauty in that album.
Billy MacKenzie passed away aged 39 on January 22nd 1997 leaving a lasting musical legacy.

The Many Moods of
Released 23/03/09. The sole album release by the infamous Murry Wilson, father of the beach boys three wilson brothers. A suite of orchestral pop instrumentals, including a Brian Wilson production, a cover of warmth of the sun , an Al Jardine original and material written by Wilson Snr himself. Recorded in la in 1967, this album is an intriguing insight into the mindset of this unique, much discussed character of legend. A must for any beach boys fan or collector, the many moods of Murry Wilson is presented here in its very rare stereo mix and packaged in a digipak with an 8 page booklet containing comprehensive sleeve-notes, production info etc. Huge collector’s potential for this much overlooked piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is the Beach Boys story. The vinyl album commands consistently high prices among collectors when it does appear, but has become an increasingly rare presence at record fairs, on ebay etc. Our Price: £9.95

Freaky Trigger
After the demise of Edinburgh cult band Fire Engines in 1982, founder and lead singer/ guitarist Davey Henderson placed his finger firmly on the freaky trigger of eighties pop gun WIN. Managed by the Postcard label sheriff Alan Horne. One of the great lost bands of the eighties, WIN were so much the sum of the decade s parts, it was obvious their time would not come until the decade was dead and buried. With continued interest in Fire Engines , much interest in Henderson s recent bands, the Nectarine No. 9 and the Sexual Objects , WIN look set for a timely re-evaluation.Following a trash course of Prince, Marilyn Monroe and Pope John Paul the First, WIN s second album, Freaky Trigger, was produced by Zeus B. Held - a name at the helm of many a classic eighties production (Fashion - Fabrique / Dead Or Alive - Sophisticated Boom Boom / Transvision Vamp – Pop Art/Velveteen). This first ever re-issue includes the original Virgin Records 1989 release - featuring singles What ll You Do Til Sunday Baby, Dusty Heartfelt and Love Units with it’s remarkable Prince like 12 extended mix - complete with bonus flips from the same period. It has tunes with more hooks than Lady GaGa has looks as well as cheeky in tongue lyrics to boot, and a glistening 80’s Glam chic.
Our Price: £9.95
