Travelogue tops my list of records made by John B. Lovely stuff. Great pressing.

From what I can see there's two version of this album on vinyl - I have a copy that's full production (printed selves and album cover) w/ 4 plates, but on side D I have the awesome tune 'StarBurst' in place of' VCF & Reflections' Startburst looks like it was originally featured on the white label / test pressing... Great album, and anyone thinking about it SHOULD. Classic golden ear Drum & Bass.
