Anyone heard about the the album reissue in a few weeks? A vinyl page I'm on on FB says it's getting a proper reissue not just the coloured vinyl that came out last year

Juno Records seriously underestimated the demand for this album. Out of stock already. You can request an email notice when more copies ware available. There is a whole new generation of La's fans who missed out way back in 1990. Appreciation for the La's as spread, deepened in more countries. If you can find it buy it as a gift for friends and family. If in the UK call Juno and pester them to release many more copies, +44 (0)20 7424 2800. What's wrong with them? 8)

Rough Trade's cover bio for this release.

https://www.roughtrade.com/music/the-la-s-cce31dd2-14e4-4342-92cb-9a44bb02f222

180 Gram Black Vinyl Version with Download of the self-titled album by The La's, which was the only studio release from the four piece, originally released in 1990. It includes the tracks There She Goes, the group's most popular hit, and Timeless Melody. A truly sleeper classic. Like many bands of the British pop movement of the early 1990s, the La's created a big-though short-lived-splash, then belly-flopped into obscurity. Most will remember them only from their pillowy single, There She Goes, but this album is replete with delightfully jangly, remarkably well-crafted songs and deserves to be waived from the stigma of one-hit-wonderdom. Lead singer and songwriter Lee Mavers is largely the culprit responsible for the success and failure of this album; a perfectionist, he ultimately paralyzed the album's momentum with band-member changes, the relentless rerecording of songs, and obsession over details, which caused fatal delays in its completion and release. But his pursuit of perfection was nearly achieved - almost every song had potential as a successful single.
