The Aphex Twin* ‎– Digeridoo

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
Digeridoo was originally released on R&S with four tracks: "Digeridoo" and an early fade of "Flap Head", plus "Phloam" and an extended version of "Isoprophlex" (track 2 from the first Aphex Twin release, Analogue Bubblebath). This Belgian 12" was repressed in 2001 & 2006 with sleeve & label variations.

The 1992 UK 12" & CD, both released via Outer Rhythm, insert a slight edit of "Analogue Bubblebath 1" (track 1 from the first Aphex Twin release) after "Digeridoo" and use the full-length "Flap Head", here titled "Flaphead". However, they mistakenly label "Phloam" as "Isoprophlex", and they don't contain the actual "Isoprophlex" track at all.

The Classics compilation includes "Digeridoo", "Phloam", the edit of "Analogue Bubblebath 1" and the full-length "Flaphead", as well as the extended version of "Isoprophlex", but retitles the latter as "Isopropanol".

Hello people. my copy has a generic R+S sleeve. Long time ago but I'm pretty sure I bought it on import. There is no sticker on the sleeve, so I'm fairly sure its a Belgian version. All the copies on here seem to have a picture sleeve. Anyone any info?

I just bought a copy of this, no barcode, sideways writing on the silver label but it does have “IN ORDER TO DANCE” on labels. Anyone else have this?

Does this 2006 reissue contain Isoprophlex? I know it's missing from some versions of the release.

We saw a spritely young Richard in Preston Ritzys circa 1992 after John Peel had played this tune on Radio 1. We turned up and danced till 29 minutes later he'd blown the rubbish speakers off the wall with his top notch kit. Thats when we all sat down and Richard ate that orange and afterwards we all went home.

Electronic porn of the highest order. Classic tracks that will always be important

Can anyone confirm if their copy of the 2001 repress came with an R&S Vintage sticker on the sleeve, just like the 2006 repress?
My repress copy has the R&S Vintage sticker on it, but I do not believe I was buying IDM any longer in 2006, but what have been in 2001.
Something to ponder: R&S considered 1999 material to be "Vintage", as seen in this release: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Vintage-RS-Volume-3/release/62133
Thanks for digging out your copy to check - much appreciated.

This is completely overcompressed shit.** When played on a decent system, it distracts from the compositions (which are, of course, quality).

---
** It's relatively rare to see so much clipping/compression applied in a release from 1992 (i.e., a number of years before the loudness war got really bad).

This version has the same sleeve as the OG release, with different type on the labels. Otherwise all the same...
