Robyn Hitchcock Reissues Sampler Playlist

Here's one of the most promising combinations of seven words one could string together: "Yep Roc begins Robyn Hitchcock reissue series".

"Reissue" means that in Rhapsody right now you can listen to Black Snake Diamond Role (1981), I Often Dream of Trains (1984), and Eye (1990) in expanded editions.

"Series" means that Fegmania (1985), Gotta Let This Hen Out! (1985), and Element of Light (1986) are scheduled to follow in "Early 2008".

"Yep Roc" means there's a free stream on their Web site of the eight-LP box set "I Wanna Go Backwards", that includes the first three reissues, along with fifty tracks of b-sides, outtakes, and home demo recordings selected by Mister Hitchcock himself.

Here's a celebratory sampler playlist of three songs from each of those first three reissues.

In fact, that's one of the reasons I took my time getting this post together, to give someone eminently more qualified chance to break the news :)
