Oh Yeh! Paul Weller’s debut album coming to vinyl late this year


The album that kick-started Weller’s renaissance

Paul Weller‘s 1992 eponymous debut album is to be reissued on vinyl LP later this year, having been out of print on the format for over 20 years…

The album would be the foundation for Weller’s massive commercial success in the early/mid nineties with the Wild Wood and Stanley Road albums and was first issued in Japan on Pony Canyon in Spring ’92 (with a slightly different running order and featuring New Thing rather than The Strange Museum) before being released in the UK on Go! Discs in the autumn of the same year.

Three singles were issued from the sixties influenced long-player – Into Tomorrow (credited to The Paul Weller Movement), Above The Clouds and Uh Huh Oh Yeh – with the latter dipping inside the UK top twenty, resulting in an appearance on Top Of The Pops.

paulw_longI absolutely love this record and remember seeing the Pony Canyon version in 1992 in Tower Records at Piccadilly Circus. Pre-internet of course, with no fanfare, there sat a brand new Paul Weller album! The CD singles were all excellent with great bonus material.

The original LP was a gatefold affair with PW’s image ‘sideways’ on the front cover, to allow the full image to wrap around the gatefold. Annoyingly this wasn’t respected on the 2009 two CD deluxe edition, but hopefully will be on this vinyl reissue.

Update: These were cancelled/postponed but are now being issued on 20 January 2017. The price has gone up dramatically though, although all original amazon pre-orders such be honoured.

If you’ve still got your pre-orders for these Weller LP’s don’t cancel them as it looks like they’re going ahead and the prices are considerably higher than originally (around £34 each) estimated by Amazon, plus there’s another 2 coming out on February 24th (Heavy Soul and Stanley Road)

All are re-mastered at Abbey Road and pressed on heavyweight vinyl.

Paul Weller: (Jan 20th)

Gatefold LP sleeve

[…] vinyl reissues of Paul Weller‘s first two solo albums, which SDE told you about back in August and were due to be released this Friday, are no longer happening… In an email […]


Yep I flagged the dead links a day or so ago – it seemed to be a forewarning that something was up.
I was hoping that Paul might be able to dig up some info but I know he is pretty busy so I guess we will just have to wait and see… (as long as they are not cancelled!).

Definitely something not right with these releases, I’ve just had the e-mail from Amazon UK indicating they’re still trying to get an estimate for the delivery (should have been dispatched today)


I have them on pre-order from Amazon UK but their links are now dead?!?
I hope they still ship today 18/11/16


These seem to have disappeared from Amazon UK (as your comparison boards indicate).
I hope they are still coming out.


Unfortunately received the Amazon ‘Email of gloom’ today (“We’re still trying to obtain the following item[s] yada yada yada”). So I’m not sure of they have been cancelled or put back.
Shame as I was looking forward to receiving them today.


Just got the email to say they have been ‘delayed’. I love how non-specific they are in not giving any idea of me a possible new date for release.

Paul, any word on if/when the rest of Weller’s 90s and 00s discography will be reissued? Or maybe even a vinyl box set?


Can’t wait for this! I remember the initial CD single that came out before the album was great and then the lp was even better! I still rank this as one of his best!

FINALLY!! I was a teenager when this album came out, so my introduction to Weller was via catching “Uh Huh Oh Yeah” on MTV in the United States at a very late hour when they still played music videos back in 1993. I had to learn about The Jam and Style Council later. ;)

This record remains my favorite Paul Weller solo album, and is long overdue for vinyl reissue.

Will it still come with it’s original lyric booklet? I still have an original vinyl copy.


My favourite Weller album, a classic.

And I bought mine at HMV Oxford Circus (CD). Sales assistant told me “he’s going back to guitars!”


This is my favourite Paul Weller album (as in ‘solo album’). Weirdly enough I bought my copy from Tower records on Piccadily Circus too. It was the Pny Canyon version and I recall being very suspicious at the time because it was not available yet in the UK. However I loved ‘Into Tomorrow’ so much that I decided to take the risk… And have never regretted it. Particularly as I still feel that this version has a superior track listing AND has the wonderful conceit of the sounds of vinyl being turned over halfway through the CD and then a runout groove jump at the end. Still brings a smile to my face.

Got rid of the vinyl of this and Wild Wood when I slimmed down my vinyl collection but will probably have to re-buy.


Still my favorite Weller LP. Every album that followed was a new level of disappointment. I finally gave up for good after the horribly mastered Wake Up the Nation.

And I prefer the original Japanese edition to the later worldwide edition. “The Strange Museum” (oddly enough, a Weller-Talbot composition) sits uneasily with the rest of the material, unlike the re-recorded “Here’s a New Thing”.

Still, this may be worth looking into.

Yes! It’s about time. I’ve been waiting for these to come out for YEARS! Let’s hope they do them with the quality that will do justice to the artist….and continue reissuing the rest of his solo catalog. It’s perfect for the vinyl format.


Into Tomorrow is a great track, just rediscovered it …thanks.

Alan Wilson

Also Wild Wood is showing up for re-release on the same date (Vinyl)


Loved this album, although I always felt that New Thing was a Style Council left over, perhaps why it was replaced. (for the record I came to Weller from the Style Council, so that was not a SC slur!)


Looking forward to this one and hopefully more coming out on vinyl. This was a great record but in my opinion it opened the door for even better albums to come.

About The Young Idea: The Very Best Of The Jam [VINYL] Box set ( 28 Oct 2016) is also on Amazon.
