Robert Wyatt releasing ‘His Greatest Misses’ best-of on vinyl for first time
The amazing Robert Wyatt has never really been a "hits" guy -- the closest he came was with his gorgeous cover of Elvis Costello's "Shipbuilding" which reached #35 in the UK charts in 1983. But he's got a deep catalog of music, all anchored by his warm, fuzzy, one-of-a-kind voice.
Some of his best songs were compiled for 2003's His Greatest Misses, which was originally released only in Japan, but then reissued on CD in the UK by Domino in 2010. It includes "Sea Song," "Shipbuilding," "At Last I Am Free," "The Age of Self," his cover of The Monkees' "I'm a Believer," "Heaps of Sheeps," and more. It's never been released on CD, but that is being remedied now as His Greatest Misses will be released as a double-vinyl set on October 9 via Domino.
You can pre-order now, including a limited edition green vinyl version. There's a standard black vinyl version as well, plus a new CD edition too. Check out the vinyl tracklist, and stream His Greatest Misses, below.
