Pale Saints : Mrs. Dolphin To Be Pressed On Vinyl For Record Store Day 2020

Previously only available on CD in Japan and released in 1991, Mrs. Dolphin rounds up the tracks from both early 4AD EPs Barging Into The Presence Of God and Half-Life, plus another that featured on the 1990 Melody Maker compilation Gigantic! 2 and ‘Colours and Shapes’, a track exclusive to this release that has, until now, been unavailable on vinyl.

Coming hot on the heels of the 30th Anniversary deluxe edition of their debut album, The Comforts of Madness, the sleeve for Mrs. Dolphin has been reconfigured by Timothy O’Donnell and collaborator Roy Burns III, who have based this new design on the original CD art whilst also incorporating new photography by Dominic Davies.  Pressed on 140g green marbled vinyl, this new edition pays further homage to its roots as it has an obi strip for the tracklisting and will come housed in a Japanese-style mylar bag.

This release is exclusive to independent record stores via Record Store Day, which takes place this year on 20th June. To find your nearest participating store, please click here.
