XTC - Black Sea CD + 5.1 / hi-res Blu-ray (expanded / remixed / remastered)

SKU 23-Ape BD104
This and English Settlement are the highest points for me, in a career filled with highlights. And now given the deluxe (and always revelatory Steven Wilson remix / hi-res & 5.1 mix!
One of the smartest, best and most distinctive pop bands of their time. Highly recommended. Their fourth album.
