Inner Panels:
'Analogue Bubblebath' represents the first music release by young prodigy Richard James, A/K/A AFX, The Aphex Twin, Polygon Window, The Dice Man. Using homemade keyboards and customized synths, James produced a vast textured soundscape of contrasting styles and speeds. Initially released as a limited edition pressing on vinyl by U.K. independent Mighty Force, 'Analogue Bubblebath' remains the benchmark for the burgeoning ambient techno movement. This is the first time this work has been made available on compact disc and the first time its been released in the United States.

Isoprophlex is actually 5:20 on this cd and is different than on Classics and the Digeridoo 12". The title track is also a slightly different mix than on Classics. Possibly the same as on the original Mighty Force 12" pressing of this, but that I cannot confirm. I paid $8 for this, so if it's still available I think it is worth buying simply for some classic analogue AFX tracks and especially for collectors.

This release is probably not worth getting as you can get the best two tracks on this release ("Analogue Bubblebath" and "Isoprophlex") on Classics. "Entrance to Exit" is also a fairly good track, but "AFX2" is too long and boring.
