GENERAL NOTES

Recorded in Paris 1976/1977 with the Manor Mobile. Mixed at Trident, London, UK.

SHORT FACTS

Seconds Out on the CD was released by the two record labels:

  • Virgin/Charisma (UK and Europe) (CD Reference: GECD 2001)
  • Atlantic Recording Corporation (USA and Canada) (CD Reference U.S: 9002-2, Canada: CD 9002)

The first album releases on the CD appeared in early 1984. This album has been released as a 2 CD box set and comes with a fat box packaging. Only Definitive Edition Remaster version of this album comes out with a slim double jewel case.

In Japan, Seconds Out has been released three times up to 1991, where the music has not been remastered. The first release was in 1987 followed by 1988 and 1991 CD pressings.

In the United States "Seconds Out" has also been issued in a CD longbox packaging. For more details, please click here.


PLEASE NOTE:

Further releases of this album after year 1999 are not presented. My collection of this album ends on the late 1990s releases. I also do not collect the remastered editions of the album.


SINGLES

This album has never been promoted by the CD single. Originally the album was released on vinyl and the music cassette in 1977.
