Stone & Steel Important Announcement

Here's an important announcement on the "rest of world" release of "STONE & STEEL".
After lengthy consideration we have decided against a new pressing of Stone & Steel for specific markets outside of the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, India, China, Australia or New Zealand (referred to as ‘Rest of the World” for this release.) A test disc was produced for a new pressing but it did not meet our high standards.
