Greetings and just a note to anyone perusing this particular cd release. I bought my copy new/sealed and not only is it a CD-R and not an official silver factory pressed CD, ( bottom playing surface looks blue/violet-ish ....more like a burned DVD) but interestingly, the top/non playing surface of the disc is different than the edition showed here on Discogs, as my disc does not have the graphic of the Eden's Island cover shot of ahbez's face. It is just a plain surface with the black printed titles/words/graphics ,ie, Eden Ahbez - Eden's Island, Righteous , PO Box , etc. Marketed by Cherry Red., etc... almost like what we usually see on a promo cd.
All that said, the professional appearance quality of the liner notes/booklet are satisfying and groovy enough :)
I appreciate the release but had neglected to write this comment when i bought my copy 3 years ago.

SOUND QUALITY RATING (Audio Chain: Clearaudio Concept MM => Lehmann Audio Black Cube SE => NAIM NAC 82/NAP 250)
Sound is not exceptional but not bad at all, just generic. Low surface noise.

I might be a bit OCD, but my copy doesn't say what number (out of 500) it is. How am I going to live without knowing this!?

Tracklist is incorrect here. It was changed for some reason on the 1995 CD reissue and that has been the running order ever since. The original is sequenced much differently. The poem-songs start each side.

I have the latest Captain High pressing (CH 4815-1). I think it sounds very good, in the sense that it's a very clean pressing, but yes, probably cut using a CD master. I can't compare it to any other versions. The print quality isn't brilliant, but it's fine. Is it actually a licensed product, or a boot?

The image of the cover art is misleading. It's actually more of a cream/brown colour, as it's printed on tobacco papers.
It looks A LOT better than what the image shows, and it's definitely not bright yellow.

I'd suggest asking someone for an image (or ask me!) if you're thinking of purchasing this one.

Myself and another keen fan of this album, have gone through them all, and discovered this one to be definitely the best of the bunch.

Very impressive sound quality, haven't heard any other version of this one but this right here is spot-on! Nice work Fantôme Phonographique.

Responding to a couple below, the Captain High is fairly poor sounding. Very dull and lifeless and probably just a CD pressed into some grooves. I originally had the Moi J'Connais Records version, but sold it when Captain High's was released because I wanted the original cover (and the cover on Captain High's is a good looking one). Whenever I played the Captain High I felt it was a huge step down, but didn't have the Moi J'Connais to compare. I recently re-bought the Moi J'Connais version and the difference was even more pronounced than I remembered. The Moi J'Connais version sounds WONDERFUL! Full of life, a true pleasure to listen to. Captain High's is garbage by comparison.

I'm quite confused about which version of the vinyl to get. I've heard the captain high versions aren't that great. Can anyone comment/help me out?

Nasty cover art.... why did they change it from the original LP ? It wrecks the whole vibe
