Tenth Planet is now one of the leading re-issue labels around. Formed in 1992 mainly because many of the the late 60s'/early 70's recording were becoming increasingly hard to find and expensive to buy that the majority of collectors were pushed out of the market. It was decided that all releases would be in a limited edition format, thus preserving the collector's angle whilst at the same time enabling people to hear/obtain music that they could otherwise only have read about. After putting out a few albums like this, the label was offered other achive recordings, some of which hadn't even got as far as the private pressing status and from that point on it became the parellel universe of pop history.
