Pre order today for April 14th release. SKYLARKING, one of XTCs best loved albums, now comes with historic audio problems corrected. This disc lets the music sound just like it did in Todd Rundgren's studio, and it's on CD for the first time. Here is a major leap ahead sonically, over any edition issued previously and is a treat to hear. Both DEAR GOD and MERMAID SMILED are restored to their original positions in the running order too.

Mastering engineer John Dent is the man who identified the reversed polarity issue and has now corrected it for this very special edition. Also reinstated is the original artwork,suppressed by Virgin at the time.

Click SHOP and head over.
