The printed information for this record is very promising. Even disregarding the remixes, the label still advertises Maiden Voyage (Original 8'07>5'23 Version) as occupying a side on its own -- just what is needed to improve the pressing on 76:14.
How disappointing, then, that not only the track shares the side with the less inspired Maiden Voyage (Spiritualized Electric Mainline Mix), it is also not Maiden Voyage (Original 8'07>5'23 Version). Indeed, only 5'23 is present here, leaving the first 8:07 minutes of the epic out of the picture.
What a wasted opportunity.

Maiden Voyage (otherwise known as '8 07' and '5 23' on their seminal album '76 14') is a brilliant track. Yes, it does sample the melody from 'Love On A Real Train' by Tangerine Dream. However, that track in itself was heavily influenced by 'Music for 18 Musicians' by Steve Reich. The fact of the matter is, everything influences everything else and I think all three tracks (GC, TD and Steve Reich) are great interpretations of a classic melody! Be sure to get this release, it is quite brilliant.

"Maiden Voyage" is an uncredited cover version (or reinterpretation) of Tangerine Dream's "Love on a Real Train" which appeared on their "best of" album "Dream Sequence". The track was originally written for the soundtrack to the cult 80's film "Risky Business" and provided a sublime backdrop to one of the more passionate sequences in the film.

Whilst "Maiden Voyage" is a nice attempt to re-create the haunting beauty of the original, it doesn't come close and Global Communication should be spanked for ripping off one of the all-time seminal electronic outfits - without which my life, and many others, would not have been the same.
