Given the treatment this album has gotten over the years in terms of
both availability and songs (or lack thereof) appearing on compilations,
I get the impression that the record company is afraid to touch
Imaginos.  I know there were legal wranglings after its release, and
while I don't want to necessarily dredge up old battles, I wonder if
might have something to do with it?


PS:  Interesting to hear that the band lost 18 months of royalties while
the record label recouped the costs of remastering - just another
example of how unscrupulous they are, having the bands foot the costs.
