Just got this :P the catalogue number on the runout says XINO-1 for both sides (not XINO-1A / 1B)
Nothing wrong with my copy? Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Could this not be repressed?

Turbine is my favourite track ever. I had known about this famously overpriced curiosity for quite a while, and I had heard the track a few years ago on the Bleep43 Drexciya mix - but I didn't know what it was until recently. When I heard The Countdown has Begun and realised it wasn't the same track.... aaargh! Nightmare. Raw, direct, animated and evocative sounds in the same spirit as I-Fs I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less. Brilliant.

Well, I have finally heard this one and can say with out a word of doubt that it is not worth the hype. Yes, it is extremely rare. Yes, it is James Stinson's first release on vinyl. Yeah, so what if it never made it to the UK and Europe for proper record store sales. And there are rumors that James didn't really like the record so a lot of the copies sat in his basement in Detroit.

It just isn't what I would call an amazing Electro record. I tend to think that a lot of the early Detroit releases are better, Ultradyne, and almost all of his Drexciya stuff. I think that the only release that James did that I like even less is "Balance of Terror."

There is a bright side though, I really love the track Data Transfer. I find it to be incredibly smooth and has just the right amount of funk sprinkled on top. If someone were to put out a James Stinson's greatest hits album, DT certainly would be one of the highlights.

Hyperspace Sound Lab is an extremely rare and important record. The tracks found on this release are the first works ever committed to vinyl by James 'Drexciya' Stinson.

James Stinson chose the alias, 'Clarence G' as a reference to an author 'Clarence G. Hamilton' who wrote books regarding music theory and music history. Some of the titles of the books are:

- Epochs in Musical Progress
- Outlines of Music History
- Sound: And Its Relation To Music
- Touch and Expression in Piano Playing

Drexciya, James Stinson, were very secretive in their production techniques and influences, but this is one of many Drexciyan mysteries solved.
