Other Releases

Over the past 30 years Cressida’s albums have been re-issued regularly by different record companies. Although several have been unauthorised releases, the labels who have re-issued the Cressida albums under license include:

Repertoire Records in Germany who, in 1996, were the first to re-issue the original “Cressida” and “Asylum” LPs on vinyl.

More recently Repertoire re-released versions of the first two albums both on a double CD and vinyl. The LPs were digitally re-mastered at half speed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London by Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison & many others) and then pressed on 180g vinyl.

Esoteric Records (a subsidiary of Cherry Red Records) released “The Vertigo Years Anthology 1969-1971” in 2012. These re-mastered tracks included all titles from the first two Cressida albums as well as the original demos for “Lights in my Mind” and “Mental State” plus the unreleased single, “Situation”.

In addition, the compendium included the two tracks “Depression” and “Winter Is Coming Again” recorded for the BBC Radio “Sounds of the Seventies” in 1969.

Esoteric Records also released “Trapped In Time – The Lost Tapes” on CD which included an alternate version of “Situation” as a bonus track.

In 2017, Marquee Inc. in Japan, released new editions of the “Cressida”, “Asylum” and “Trapped In Time” albums on their Bella Antique Label specifically for the Japanese market. These releases included three bonus tracks of never-before heard early mixes of “Munich”, “Survivor” and “Let Them Come When They Will” without the orchestra featured on these tracks on the original “Asylum” album. A fourth bonus track of “Wind in the Night” was included on the “Trapped In Time” CD
