I really want the vinyl of this, but it is £40+ p&p and (unlike the last one) not signed.  It looks the part though.  Hmmmm.

Yes, not a cheap item. It looks good though, and you get  a free 7".

 £20 extra and a free single!! This country doesn't half get taken in!     I'll stick with the new ones by Bob (£12 for a double) and Phoebe Bridgers.

Which probably means, people like me will grumble about it, then buy it.  In truth, having got lots of nice Shirley vinyl and a fair number of signatures, I think I'll probably stick with the CD, but don't quote me in a court of law on that  Grin

I understand your reaction David, but it took me about 10 seconds to make the decision to order it, ignoring the part if me that might say '40 quid ! it's only a record for gods sake'. I ve got quite a bit of SC vinyl too and look forward to adding this. 😎

Cat Stevens  has or is about to, re record Tea for the Tillerman for  50th anniversary release.  I'm not a fan of his particularly   but  I'm curious.

Why do artists do this(re-recording classic material)?  It is always a bad idea...and yet they seem to stubbornly persist in convincing themselves otherwise.

Larkin Pie’s new album “Self Made Man” will be coming out this Friday, 12th June.

From what I’ve seen and heard so far it’s going to be another banger.

I don't know why they do it. Is it very common? I'm trying to think of artists who've done it.

Obviously Fairport have re-recorded the odd song, and done an album full of them, but never replicated a whole album in the studio (cf. Babbocombe Lee live). The only ones I can think of are both Martin Turner and Wishbone Ash re-recording Argus.

Oh, there's bucket loads...just recently, Therapy have re-recorded classic material https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/therapy/greatest-hits-2020-versions

Few more here https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/jan/18/what-makes-musicians-rerecord-old-albums-shins-car-seat-headrest  There's loads more.

I actually nearly mentioned the Martin Turner Argus.  I really rate that.  I think legal/moral reasserting of material is (very nearly) a get out of jail card  Wink

I think it's occasionally done for legal reasons, so the artist can obtain financial rewards by re-recording popular tunes that, by virtue of old contracts, belong to somebody else. Other times, I presume it's done for artistic reasons. Sometimes, both. In 1987, Roy Orbison put out a collection called "In Dreams: The Greatest Hits," featuring very familiar tunes re-recorded in the studio using modern technology. Wikipedia says his original recordings belonged to Monument Records, with which he was involved in a legal dispute at the time. I really love this collection. I prefer this version of "In Dreams" to the original. I have a mid-80s compilation rerecorded by Pure Prairie League, as well, which is sonically superior to their original recordings.

Lately, Taylor Swift has been threatening to go down this path in order to co-opt sales of her catalog titles, which currently belong to her old label, Big Machine.

Not whole albums, but Suzanne Vega recorded four albums of acoustic re-recordings (largely - there were a few 'new' songs in there) of her songs, at least partly for control reasons.

Although Wishbone Ash's was part of a live session with an audience recorded for XM Radio in the States, rather than a studio re-recording. Universal had recently put out the 2CD deluxe version of Argus so a full run through of the album was a regular part of their set at the time.
