Edgar Froese ‎– Aqua

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
Edgar Froese's "Aqua" exists as two original LP versions...
1. The German Brain issue
2. The much more common Virgin issue
Not only is the track order different, but two tracks are different mixes. The gatefold cover also swaps the outside image around.
The later Eastgate CD release is a different recording.

Excellent ambient early Froese's solo work. Aqua (water) is essence of life...

I own three different versions of this on vinyl. Two are on Virgin, the US copy and the UK copy. The third is the second German pressing on the green Brain label, without "Metronome" under "Brain" on the label. The US copy depicts the title and artist more near the top than near the bottom on the front cover. The German pressing is unique. Sides one and two have been switched, as have been already mentioned in the entry for this title, but "Panorphelia" and "Upland" also differ quite enough to make the Brain purchase worth the buy if you're familiar with the Virgin version (or any CD version aside from the dreadful Eastgate abomination). "Panorphelia", for example, starts off, instead of VCS-3 synth white noise sound effect, it starts off with some rather strange whooshing spacy VCS-3 synth effects before going into the more familiar pulsing VCS-3 synth sound and Mellotron. "Upland" has some differing sound effects as well, but also the familiar bubbling VCS-3 synth effects and organ. Also the reversed sound of tinkling piano is also absent at the end. As for "NGC 891" and the title track, they're pretty much the same regardless if it was on Brain or on Virgin. Some people may wonder why I have more than one copy of the same time. This is a great example why, especially if they contain tracks that differ enough from the other version I have where I can easy take notice. I really took noticed to the intro of "Panorphelia" because it's so drastically different from the Brain to Virgin versions.

My copy looks exactly like this but is a gatefold.
Is this version?
