    Hi Deborah,
    I’m a long-time fan having lived in Adelaide during the ‘Man Overboard’ years and still own my most treasured copy of ‘The Happiest Place in Town’ – but it’s a tape. I’m desperate to find a CD version of the same – do you know where I can purchase one? I was in Adelaide last year for a holiday (I now live in Finland) & bought ‘Only the bones’ – a great album. The shop said that it wasn’t available on CD – perhaps you can help me? Best regards,
    Marise Lehto

    Hi all,
    Not wanting to brag but I do have this album on CD (and Domestic Harmony). I won them both individually off eBay within the past few years.
    Details: UK Pressing, 1988 CDV2467, Virgin. 12 tracks (as listed). Full cover with lyrics. Being a big DC fan this copy is NOT FOR SALE. Best wishes finding yourselves a copy.
    [Domestic Harmony 15 track CD CDV2367 Virgin mastered in Austria, lyrics included also NOT FOR SALE].

    With a lot of bands from the 80’s re-releasing their albums on CD…is there any chance of DC releasing both DoReMi albums (complete with remastering and extra tracks..12″ versions, Bsides .. so on) It would really enhance the DC collection!!

    Hi guys, DRM are currently trying to get the master tapes of D. Harm, Happiest Place and the demos of the unreleased third album back from Virgin in UK. But don’t hold your breath. It won’t happen overnight. In the meantime I noticed Amazon U.K have a copy of HPIT masquerading as Domestic Harmony in their listings. Weird I know. So be quick. And watch out, it might be vinyl. In which case I want it.

    At long last, looks like this is finally widely available in a digital form – for download from
    Only added in August 2005.

    I have a CD copy of Happiest Place In Town, great music, let down badly by terrible mastering…
    Would be great to see this re-released and remastered.
