A Peacock's Tale is the first studio release by Magic Eight Ball. It's a 4-song EP originally released in 2007, but was later re-released under the band's Magic Cat Records label.
Prior to the formation of Magic Cat Records, the band originally released 'A Peacock's Tale' on CD in 2007 (and later digitally as well with slightly different bonus tracks). The 2012 re-release of the EP on Magic Cat Records was remastered by Dave Draper using one of the original 2007 Neil Sadler mixes and three of Neil's new 2012 remixes.
P.S. The instrumental 'L. N. E. (For The Love Of Three Girls)' has since been renamed and re-recorded as 'Peacocks'.
