Pale Saints : Pale Saints Unveil Video For 'Sight Of You' Ahead Of Record Story Day Release
25th August 2020

Coming ahead of Record Store Day this weekend, when Pale Saints early-90s Japanese singles compilation Mrs. Dolphin finally gets released on vinyl, director Terako Terao has worked with singer Ian Masters to make a video for ‘Sight of You’.  Shot in the Japanese countryside, this new promo is the first official video for one of the band’s most loved songs, coming over 30 years after its original release.

This version of ‘Sight of You’ is taken from their 1989 debut EP Barging into the Presence of God (BAD 910), with the track being re-recorded a year later when appearing on their celebrated debut album, The Comforts of Madness.  The original version then appeared on 1991’s Mrs. Dolphin, a sought after Japanese CD compilation that rounded up all the band’s released early material.

Directed and edited by: Terako Terao

Finally getting the vinyl pressing fans have long asked for, Mrs. Dolphin is being released this Saturday as part of Record Store Day.  Check recordstoreday.com for more details and for a list of all participating independent record stores.

For this limited pressing, the artwork has been reconfigured by Timothy O’Donnell and collaborator Roy Burns III, who have based their new design on the original CD art whilst also incorporating new photography by Dominic Davies.  Pressed on 140g green marbled vinyl, this new edition pays further homage to its roots as it has an obi strip for the tracklisting and comes housed in a Japanese-style mylar bag.
