Thanks for the link! Great post.

This LP was released in a hurry while the Sinners were already releasing their new album on a new label. Their old label chose a similar title (Sinnerisme, compare to the other.. Sinnerismes) and even used the same photo. Kinda like the first Small Faces albums as both their Decca & Immediate LPs were released around the same time.

So there's another LP "Sinerismes" ? Hope it's as good as this one.

Thank you very much, this record is fantastic.
