Product Description

Single LP reissue with all 15 songs. The first 1980s versions didn’t include Dear God and after it was a hit, Mermaid Smiled was dropped on some later versions to include Dear God. XTC's frothy, beatle-esque concept album about birth, death, and the passing of the seasons is hardly soft-headed: its melodic inventiveness and lush orchestrations supports bitterness (That's Really Super, Supergirl), displacement (The Man
who Sailed Around His Soul), and agnostic tirade (Dear God) as often as it does the pleasures of sun and shower. The greatest achievement of XTC's post- Drums and Wires career, Skylarking is a must-have for the first days of spring. LP - Now available on a single vinyl LP with all tracks for the first time ever. Pressed on superior 200gram vinyl. Song lyrics sheet included. The full album has only been on vinyl in 2LP deluxe editions playing at 45RPM.
