"We mixed it badly on a laptop in January 2011 and then it was finished, but listening back it just sounded bad because of the mix," says Steve today.
"So it was time to re-do that, get rid of the interludes and make it sound like it should've done, and put it on vinyl - those were the three things that were missing for me."
Working at his home studio, Steve set about the task of giving the album a new lease of life.
"The first track I tried mixing was The Pleasure Seekers, which is the second track on the record, and as soon as I heard the proper drums in it, that's what made me think it'll be worthwhile doing it."
The resulting fresh new mix breathes a new warmth into the 10-track collection, which opens with 'Last Days of the Old World'.
"I recorded [that track] at [Paul Weller's] Black Barn Studio's towards the end of the Kundalini sessions," explains Steve.
"I just thought 'I have to make an album now I've done that tune', it set me on the road to it."
'Last Days of the Old World' was written as a warning about society's increased reliance on social media and new technology.
"It wasn't made as a big statement, it was just a whimsical thought as these things are, but now it's a true bold statement isn't it?" he says.
