WOW..... LONG OUT OF PRINT DETOUR RELEASE NOW GETS THE RE-ISSUE TREATMENT AND COMES WITH A BONUS DISC OF THE BAND PLAYING LIVE AT THE "GREYHOUND", FULHAM IN LONDON BACK IN FEBRUARY 1980. THIS AMAZING LIVE GIG WAS RECORDED PROFESSIONALLY AS IT WAS INTENDED TO HAVE BEEN RELEASED BY THEIR RECORD COMPANY AT THE TIME AND WAS EVEN ADVERTISED AS COMING SOON IN THE MUSIC PRESS.... SADLY THIS ALBUM NEVER SAW THE LIGHT OF DAY AS JOHN BURKE, THE SINGER HAD A HEAD COLD ON THE NIGHT AND THOUGHT HIS VOCALS SUFFERED BUT ON HEARING THESE RECORDINGS 30 YEARS ON HE HAS SINCE CHANGED HIS MIND AND ALLOWED US TO RELEASE THESE RECORDING AS THEY WERE INTENDED .... NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THIS HISTORIC LIVE PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN RESTORED DIRECT OFF THE MASTER TAPE AND CAN BE HEARD IN ITS FULL GLORY!!!!!

THE ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE FOR THE SINGLE DISC READ.....  HERE AT ‘DETOUR’ WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT OUR JEWEL IN OUR CROWN…AFTER 15 YEARS WE HAVE FOUND THE MOST ELUSIVE AND MOST FAMOUS MOD BAND EVER DUE TO THEIR IN-FAMOUS SINGLE ‘THREE BANDS TONITE’. EVERYBODY KNEW THE SINGLE BUT HARDLY ANYBODY OWNED IT DUE TO IT’S RARITY. EVERYBODY HEARD THE STORY ABOUT ONLY 2000 COPIES BEING PRESSED AND 800 OF THEM BEING DESTROYED IN A FLOOD. WELL….FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, WE OFFER YOU THE BANDS COMPLETE STUDIO RECORDED OUTPUT INCLUDING BOTH SIDES OF THE SINGLE & COMPILATION APPEARANCES. YES, 22 TRACKS IN TOTAL, ALL RECORDED BETWEEN 1978 – 1982. IN-DEPTH SLEEVE NOTES PUT TOGETHER  BY ‘DAVE EDWARDS’ AFTER INTERVIEWING TWO MEMBERS OF THE BAND AND HAS MANY RARE PHOTOS…..NOT TO BE MISSED!!!!!
