Tidal Blues is the first studio album by Alison Statton and Spike, featuring vocalist Alison Statton (Young Marble Giants, Weekend) and guitarist Spike Williams (Weekend, Reptile Ranch).

Recorded between London and Cardiff in 1994, Tidal Blues is a collection of original songs produced and co-written by the duo. Largely acoustic, the set was recorded with a six piece band including Phil Moxham (Young Marble Giants) as well as Rachet Byrt (viola), Andrew Moxham (drums), Harry Becket (trumpet) and Paula Gardiner (double bass).

On this expanded remaster the original album is joined by five bonus tracks from their jazzy 1991 EP Weekend in Wales. The CD features upgraded artwork and liner notes.
