Good news: there's a US Bolero CD 205 reissue and it's avaliable very cheap and it's far the best soundquality recording of all the CD versions! New digitalising and despite of all decadence of our era, this one is a very good exception of the bad remasters because it's not remastered but digitalised from the original tape and it's more precise and detailed. Everything sounds better there. NO EQ, no boosts! Great. The release is not listed here yet as I see... Wonderful album, highly recommended!

"Pavane De La Belle Au Bois Dorman" should be "Pavane De La Belle Au Bois Dormant"

My copy of RCA RL-13412 Red Seal is definately entitled Daphnis et Chloe. All the titles are in french, as on the Australian version. The LP and the sleeve are both made in The Netherlands.

This is the last Tomita LP I bought. I really wanted to hear something original not just reworkings of old masters, however clever they could be. It is only recently that I have started to listen again and I am surprised at how they have stood the test of time, but I still want to hear something original by Tomita before I can really rate him with the other synthesizer wizards.
