Re: Klark Kent

As I just finished Andy Summers well written autobio, I was listening to Klark Kent [or Klerk Kant as some would have it] this last week. The entire Police output isn't worth a single Klark Kent single [on green Kryptone vinyl]!

I just have the following:

Don't Care/Thrills + Office Girls UK 7"
Too Kool To Kalypso/Kinetic Ritual UK 7"
Away From Home/Office Talk US 7"
Klark Kent UK A+M 10"
Klerk Kant JPN 8 trk CD

I never got the US 10" as it was harder to get by the time I acted - 82? I remember that the packaging was superior to the UK edition, and with completely different liner notes. I also recall that late in the game, IRS re-issued this on 12" black vinyl! My friend Tom got a copy of this and I bet it's the rarest KK release, and the only one on black vinyl to boot!

I always thought that the picture on the back cover was taken on the set of "The Empire Strikes Back." Does anyone know about this?

I never got the 1995 US CD "Kollected Works" because having dropped $35 on the "Klerk Kant" CD on its issue in the early 90s, I felt I had bled enough for the cause. But in the back of my mind, I always wanted a copy - used to get the b-sides on CD + the three unreleased tracks. Of course, now it's an OOP $$$-disc.

I did some looking into thhings and apparently, the US CD does not have the track "Guerilla." Reading the Amazon reviews of the 3 unreleased tracks, their appropriateness within the Klark Kent Kanon is kalled into kwestion [sorry - couldn't resist!]. So I guess I can live without Kollected Works. But I resolved to make my own complete CD.

A little further digging revealed that there is another spare KK track, "Yo Ho Ho" on an IRS x-mas CD from the early 90s that's very easy to get as a decent price. So when the Amazon gift certificates arrive from the in-laws for my birthday, part of the useage is earmarked to get this CD. Hopefully, I can generate a real KK be-all/end-all CD very soon.

Now if I could only get a copy of the "Away From Home" music vid.

Jim-san,

What I found was a green vinyl 8 song U.S. copy in a die-cut sleeve.

Not sure about the video - I.R.S. did a lot of 'reels', so, it may turn up.

Ron:

You have the classic 1st US pressing. But I must ask: did it include the warning sticker that foretold of the record shrinking and turning green if the shrink wrap were ever opened? That made the US pressing the best and a classic of sorts, even if the 10" record came in a 12" sleeve - a bit awkward, that.
