The vinyl format features two non-CD tracks 'Thar She Blows' and 'Black Horse White'.
His first album since 2008's 'When The Haar Rolls In', 'I Was A Cat From A Book' finds James Yorkston playing with a new band comprised of members of Lamb and The Cinematic Orchestra, alongside old friends.
The album was produced by James Yorkston and Dave Wrench and mostly recorded live during five wintery days in Bryn Derwen Studios, North Wales.
It's an album full of energy and great musicianship, and contains James' strongest and most bewildering set of songs yet.
Since the release of 'When The Haar Rolls In', James has published a book ('It's Lovely To Be Here'), collaborated with The Big Eyes Family Players on Folk Songs, and seen the ten year anniversary release of 'Moving Up Country', his landmark debut album.
