Nobody's Perfect on cassette

Don't worry, the very, very long-awaited and overdue reissue of Nobody's Perfect will not be on cassette, nor will it be on LP (not initially anyway), but will of course be on CD and the usual high-quality download formats. But who knew that Nobody's Perfect was actually released on cassette? They NEVER show up on EBay, Discogs, etc.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates from HiddenMasters on the Chris Wood set. Due to matters entirely out of their hands, that set is delayed which has a knock-on for 'Parabolically Yours'. So, you guessed it, you will have to wait just a little longer for this set. It will be well worth the wait...
