JAMES release a re-recorded version of the live favourite “Sit Down” on Fontana on March 18. Produced by Gil Norton and mixed by Dave Bascombe, it’s backed with a nine-minute version of the same track, recorded live at Manchester G·MEX last December. Due to its length, the B-side plays at 33rpm. 12-inch and CD versions contain an extra track, the previously unreleased James song ”Tonight’.
James also release a full-length live video, filmed at the G·MEX gig, on April 15, while an hour-long TV version of the show is to be transmitted by Granada TV on March 27.
The group are currently recording their new album which is scheduled for autumn release. An extensive UK tour is being set up to coincide.
