Also released in a limited edition cardboard gatefold sleeve CD format with different artwork. That's the version that I possess.

'Echo Dek' is essentially the 'Vanishing Point' album remixed by the godlike hand of Adrian Sherwood. The production bears the distinctive Sherwood stamp with full-on time / echo dub, massive bass artefacts and trippy samples used to mind-warping effect. The original tracks are twisted into a surreal audio soundscape that should be listened to in a dub / ambient / downtempo frame of mind, ideally with herbal accompaniment. The distinction between 'Vanishing Point' and 'Echo Dek' is massive i.e. two unique albums from the one musical root.

Standout tracks for me are 'Vanishing Dub' and 'JU87', the former an awesome pounding dub and the latter a track designed to blow apart any stoners on the couch :) The remix examples of 'Burning Wheel' and 'Kowalski' are notable as the originals were already pretty dubby on 'Vanishing Point'.

If 'Vanishing Point' was chilled out and laid back, 'Echo Dek' is completely stoned out of it's box and one toke away from having a whitey on the floor. Fantastic stuff.
