Robert Plant will release a limited edition version of 'Fate of Nations' for Record Store Day

Recommended Posts

Robert Plant announced last week that he will release a new limited edition vinyl remaster of his 1993 solo album "Fate of Nations" for Record Store Day on April 13.

The new remaster of the album will be limited to 6,000 copies worldwide and will be pressed on 180g vinyl.

The US Record Store Day website lists just 1,000 copies being made available there.

The listing for the release on the official UK Record Store Day website  gives more information about the albums packaging:

"This special limited edition 180g black vinyl of Fate of Nations is being reissued on Robert Plant's own record label Es Paranza around Earth Day. All profits from the sale of this record will be given to Robert Plant's nominated Environmental charity. The album title and the artwork of the original 1993 is focused on the impacts of geo-politics and globalization  on the earth/Robet's environmental concerns. The outer sleeve will be high end matt soft pack, whilst the inner sleeve will be printed on ethically sourced material and feature updated artwork (Environmental facts from 1993 compared to today's data). This album has not been available on vinyl for 30 years (since the 90's)."

One of his best solo albums.  Interestingly, it will be over 30 minutes per side of vinyl. Does that mean it will be a quieter than most albums?

One of my all time favorites from him too, and what an absolutely great live show he and his band put on that tour!

I think it's super cool that the artwork for F.O.N. will be updated to reflect today's times!

Listening to my 1993 vinyl and  I think it sounds excellent.

As to whether a vinyl will sound quieter than most albums that may happen as well as other quality issues.

Would love to see a F.O.N.box set or double vinyl with bonus tracks included.
