Kath Bloom & Loren Connors' Moonlight and Sand In My Shoe reissued

Rare collectables out again on vinyl with bonus live tracks

Two album reissues of Kath Bloom and Loren Connors’s 1980s music have been announced. Chapter Music will be releasing vinyl LP versions of the duo’s Sand In My Shoe (1983) and Moonlight (1984). Both reissues come with bonus material: Sand In My Shoe has extra tunes from the 1982 live EP Pushin’ Up Daisies, and Moonlight features a selection of rare 1984 live recordings.

Featuring regular Connor collaborator Robert Crotty, Moonlight currently has an average resale value of £164 on discogs. The Australian label Chapter Music have previously reissued various Bloom/Connors recordings on CD.
