There is currently
work being done behind the scenes to get the fabulous release "Back
To The Story" re-released. It was the definitive Idle Race collection
covering all three albums along with rare 'B' sides and alternative
versions. Stumbling upon the albums existence by chance, its demise
was met with cries of anguish from music fans worldwide when they realised
that they could no longer order the darn thing (The only other previous
Idle Race CD was the 'See For Miles' release which is and was long deleted)!
in the promotions department at EMI meant that the double album did
not get any promotion which of course led to slow sales... Heck, it
doesn't take a brain surgeon to realise that people won't buy what they
can't see or hear! It was therefore unceremonously dumped shortly after
it was released... *sigh*
For a band that
has always sold its records over the period of time, rather than in
the first weeks of release, this was very sad news indeed.
Let's hope that
everything falls into place in the very near future and justice prevails.
