Some differences between this CD and the original LP:

• Two tracks which debuted on the 1976 cassette are included: "Angel Play" and "Rainbow Canyon".
• "Libra Sunrise" begins with additional synth sounds.
• "Libra Sunrise" and "Formentera Sunset Clouds" are not mixed together as they are on the LP.
• The LP track "Lanua Cove" is omitted.
• "Lueena Coast" is spread across two tracks, with the first part now titled "I Passion You A Leap Of Love-Flame".
• "Osiris Bull-Man" was renamed "Osiris Bull-Man & Elephant Walk".
• "Cloud Prayer" is a slightly different mix with fuller sound and additional synth drones.
• "The Bubble Massage" is EQ'd much differently.
• "Aries" and "Crystal Petals" play slightly slower on CD.
• The CD adds a faint, constant ~15734 Hz tone from a nearby NTSC television.

The LP may seem to have more high-frequency content, but spectrogram observations reveal that with one minor exception, this is just an illusion from background hiss and EQ differences; the CD has the full spectrum.

Five stars for the music, 1 star for the packaging. Minimal packaging is one thing, but K-Tel style instructions how to "listen," "order," or "download...at all he major download sites, like Amazon and iTunes" and to "enjoy" is about as corny as the original artwork and moments of the music. Definitely seek out the EM issue or at a minimum one of the budget priced vinyl reissues. No one needs another crappy empty jewel box like this.

This music sits at the crossroads of psychedelic, prog, new age, space music and ambient. Recommended for fans of Popol Vuh, Fripp, Eno and Michael Stearns' early works.

I just got a new version of this which is quite different than the one here. It is still embossed in gold, but the one I just got, which must be the 1978 version, says "UNITY RECORDS" as opposed to "UNITY RECORDS STEREO" in the bottom right hand corner of the cover. The record's label is a pink and blue yin-yang as opposed to gold. Also it has four color inserts with images by Gilbert Williams and Russell Grattan, and a small paper insert which says
"Thank you for your patience, and for supporting my work with music. Spread the Joy! Love, IASOS"

Does anyone have definitive info on the difference between these two editions and the inserts? Totally fascinating, as I had never seen anything about these inserts or a difference in the editions.
