I cannot understand why they would reissue their back catalogue i mean on CD and not bother to remaster them.


Hope Mute put out some Inspirals on vinyl…
‘The Beast Inside’ is long overdue a reissue.

i still have the cassette in a green plastic cover


This is just one of six coloured vinyl reissues Mute are releasing on the same day. They include an orange vinyl pressing of the Silicon Teens LP that is exclusively available through Rough Trade shops.
@Giles – Mute issued this ACR album on CD last November.


My original cassette of this back in the day enclosed in yellow plastic ‘bag’ has long since disappeared. No interest in a vinyl version since I never had it on vinyl way back when anyway. However, I would buy a CD version with decent sound quality if they could be bothered – Mute always seemed future facing so a bit sad that they a ‘re-issuing’ something on vinyl that was never initially on that format !

Hi Giles, they reissued all their albums on CD and vinyl last year. I got the CD as they had sold out of the vinyl which might explain this reissue. A great new career spanning compilation is coming out as well.

If you click that link the Orange version is there for £18.50 direct from the band’s own online store and it includes a signed postcard if you pre order. I’ve already got the Factory blue box tape and an earlier reissue CD on Soul Jazz so I don’t need a sexy orange vinyl version…noooo yes I do. Sold!


Hi Paul, do you know how Mute Records will be celebrating their 40th anniversary?
