The British Lions' debut album, British Lions, was reissued in Japan in 2006 in an LP-style cardboard cover (Japan Archive AIRAC-1231). The release includes the same eight bonus tracks as the the Angel Air release.

Ray Major's first solo album, First Posion (UK Angel Air SJPCD 057) was released on 6 November 2000. The album features appearances by Sandy Dillon, Mick Avery, Don Craine, and Joe Elliott, who sings lead vocal on the opening track Leave Me Be.

On 2 October 2000, Angel Air released Trouble With Women (USA Angel Air SJPCD075). The album includes all the material from the hard-to-find original album, plus a dozen bonus tracks. The original album's cover was replaced with a completely new design, however.

On 1 May 2000, Angel Air released the first British Lions album, British Lions (USA Angel Air SJPCD065). The album includes eight previously unreleased bonus tracks, including three 1979 demos by Ray Majors and John Fiddler. The CD was issued only in the USA and Japan, because Vertigo retains the rights to release the album in the UK and Europe.

On 30 July 1999 Angel Air released a British Lions compilation CD entitled Live and Rare (UK Angel Air SJPCD044). This is a single disc of live material recorded during the band's 1978 US tour, along with demos and rehearsal tracks. There is a nice booklet with rare photos and liner notes by the band.

It wasn't quite a British Lions reunion, but both Ray Majors and John Fiddler appeared at the First Annual Mott The Hoople Convention at the Robin 2 in Bilston (UK) on 17 April 1999. John performed a solo set of acoustic material, while Ray appeared with Steve Hyams, playing material from his Feather and a Tomahawk album.

Morgan Fisher's Relaxation Garden Concert Vol. III, entitled Flowers, was held in Japan on May 29, 1998. The concert helped promote Flower Music (Japan Prem Promotions PRE-1952), the album Morgan released in April 1998. Prem Promotions has also been busy reissuing much of Morgan Fisher's back catalog.
