2008 expanded edition of Vini Reilly and DC's 1985 album Circuses & Bread featuring ten bonus tracks. One of DC's finest albums as a whole, Circuses & Bread is as beautiful as it is emotional. The bonus tracks include the rare Japanese single 'For Noriko'/'Love Fading', compilation tracks 'Verbiers' and 'The Aftermath' plus four previously unreleased tracks from the cancelled 1983 album Short Stories For Pauline. Also includes the rarely heard 1983 single 'I Get Along Without You Very Well', a Hoagy Carmichael cover sung by Lindsay Reade and dedicated to her former husband, the late Anthony H. Wilson (Factory Records founder and Durutti Column manager). The booklet restores the original cover design by 8vo. LTM.

"I used to listen to this sort of thing in the '80s, and I considered Durutti Column a cut above the standard pop fare available at the time. Hearing the tracks again 20 years later takes me back, but as with any experimental approach, not all of them were listenable then and not all of them stand up to repeated listening today. Still, Vini Reilly's fingerpicking style and thoughtful approach to music means about 3/4s of the tracks are pleasant to put on for driving around in the car."
