The Nov/Dec 1986 isssue of The Catalogue lists a DAT format release (FACT 154D) as planned for 1987.

LTM reissue notes

Circuses and Bread was originally released on the Factory Benelux label in April 1986, and features ten tracks written and performed by Vini Reilly, together with drummer Bruce Mitchell. This expanded CD edition also features ten bonus tracks including compilation album tracks Verbier and The Aftermath, five previously unreleased tracks from the cancelled 1983 album Short Stories For Pauline, and 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, Anthony H. Wilson. The booklet restores the original cover design by 8vo. 19 tracks. 74 minutes of music.

Available direct from LTM and in good record shops.

Notes (additional)

FBN 36 was originally to have been an album 'Short Stories for Pauline', but was unreleased due to pressure from Factory Records in the UK. They didn't want this to interfere with the release of FACT 144 'Domo Arigato', Factory's first CD. 'Short Stories for Pauline' was shelved as Vini Reilly had recorded a new album in the meantime.
