Three Classic Richard Clapton Albums To Be Reissued In July

by Paul Cashmere on May 10, 2024

in News

Three classic Richard Clapton albums will be reissued on vinyl and CD including the rare and valuable debut album ‘Prussian Blue’.

Original pressings of ‘Prussian Blue’, released in November 1973, go for over $1000 on eBay even though the album did not chart at the time.

The other two reissues are for 1977’s ‘Goodbye Tiger’ and 1982’s ‘The Great Escape’, so there seems to be no logical order to the roll-out.

Richard is impressed by the new sound. “I have just been listening to the remasters myself, and the difference in quality is amazing. This is easily explained. The technology has been through a quantum leap over the past 50 years so the sound quality of the remasters is outstanding,” he said in a statement.

‘Goodbye Tiger’, with the songs ‘Deep Water’ and ‘Down In The Lucky Country’, is considered a Clapton classic.

‘The Great Escape’, Richard’s highest charting album at no 8, was at that point where is was the Godfather to the newer bands like INXS and Cold Chisel and mentored them in the early days.

The three albums (with bonus tracks on the CDs) will be out July 19, 2024.To order them now contact Frog at Songland Records [email protected].
