Tatooine (LP, Album, RE, RM). Saint Marie Records. Tatooine (CD, Album, RE, RM).
Tatooine is not quite as strong or as immediately appealing as 1992's Stereo Musicale, released the previous year on the Planet label. That debut had more bite, dug in harder, and seemed bigger sounding than this (gone now are the pleasant Slowdive comparisons). However, on the plus side, they've ditched that slightly overused flute, and the sextet's quiet dalliance and lulling vocals can still transport a weary soul to a nicer place. The tickling guitar work, though too far in the background this time (volume faders up, ye mixers!!!), can be fascinating.

Its artwork beautifully reinterpreted on heavy gatefold retro finish and 180gm ‘color in color’ clear and transparent red or classic black vinyl. 20 years after its release, Saint Marie Records reissues Blind Mr. Jones’ Tatooine, fully remastered on CD and for the very first time on vinyl. Been listening to this album on an old worn out tape for decades so it's a luxury to be able to dive back in the full experience.
