If you ignore the original version of Dayvan Cowboy, this is a great EP. Left Side Drive and Skyliner are fantastic and whilst they are somewhat in line with the BOC sound, they are also quite unique in terms of production style for BOC. They are in a very different vein from what they usually release and, to my ears, do not seem to fit with the palette of The Campfire Headphase which was released the year before. Skyliner is an infectious track and has wonderfully spacious reverbed drums driving it along. As a bonus the Odd Nosdam remix of Dayvan Cowboy is absolutely phenomenal and a real treat from the cLOUDEAD camp. It doesn`t so much reconstruct the original track but creates something entirely abstract from it. It sounds like gentle waves of morphing electronic symphony assembling itself into an organic machine. With a slow burning, understated but ominous mid-track crescendo which eventually crunches into gear, it propels it`s massive hulk forwards then fades away into the distance. It leaves you mildly puzzled as to what you have just experienced. Worth buying alone for this. And the white vinyl is lovely too.

Only took off one star for the Odd Nosdam remix. Dynamics are nice, but not when you have to constantly adjust your volume for 10 minutes. At least farewell fire is quiet for the rest of the song haha

Nice pressing, a far cry from the abhorrent repress of Campfire Headphase but not as good as the repress of A Beautiful Place In The Country.

Skyliner is one of my all-time favorite BOC tracks. Uplifting, dreamy and strangely, a great track to drive to... Epitomises all things Boards.

I have a repress of this, but the matrix #s are "98203 1A WAP 200" and "98203 1B WAP 200". I'm new to discogs, not sure what to do with this information. The vinyl seems to be free of defects.

Bleep have not shipped mine due to a "pressing fault "

Not sure if this affects the other tow reissue 12's

Happy with this pressing, generally. Few clicks here and there, but not distracting, rather adds to the analogue ambiance of BoC music. BoC was made for vinyl.
