      Anyone noticed that the left channel is slightly louder than the right? I use a hi-fi test record and a true mono record cut with a mono cutter head to set azimuth

        I have a variation on this 2LP that does not seem to be listed anywhere. It is an early pressing, possibly earlier than the generally accepted first pressing. On my copy the label on side D that was replaced as mentioned above, has the same credit on all four sides - that is the copyright credit says P: 1990 big life records and c: 1991 big life records. the ring wording, "all rights of the producer and of the owner" and so on are in a block under the P&C credits they are not in a standed ring around the edge of the label. There are no credits to WAU! Mr Modo on any of the labels although it says on the back sleeve p: & c: 1991 Wau! Mr Modo the copyright in these sound recordings is owned by WAU! Mr Modo big life records are the exclusive licensees for the world. The Matrix in the runoffs are the same as the ones listed here, though I cannot see the word DAMONT. I suspect this is a very early pressing that did not go to market and a later one was then issued which had WAU! Mr Modo copyright credit on the label and the ring wording in its standard place as a ring around the label perimeter. It does not contain the freepost card to join mailing list, but this may have got lost over time. If anyone can shed any light on this, I would appreciate.

            To those of you who complain about the sound and crackles:
            When you press 29 minutes on one side of a vinyl, the volume (amplitude) must be lower, so there will be enough room for the data. More volume on vinyl means more space required for the pressing. The recommended time for full quality pressing is 18 minutes per side and up to 22 minutes, you still can get a great audio quality, but in lower volume. For 23 minutes and more - well, you can hear the result...

            To avoid this problem, this album should to be re-issued on an audiophile four-vinyl edition.

              I got a second hand copy of this in pristine condition, back in late 00s..... I checked the sound quality, very special indeed, also, even though the grooves are rather tight, compared to the 4lp version, it sounds quiet and with good presence, I love it!!!!!

                incredible pressing. clear and plenty loud. oh and the music is nothing short of genius. wonderful sounds and textures. absolute must have for any electronica fan.
                • lanaspinsrecords's avatar
                  i dont think people realize why The Orb is so highly regarded as legend in the rave scene until they hear this first album. if for some reason there was no DJ, you could literally just play both these CDs on autocue back to back and it would easily entertain a chill-out room crowd. top notch trippy downtempo & ambient stuff - no other way to put it :)

                    The special classical pressing is on par with this copy ! Believe me

                      Bought this crate digger's delight at Globe News, Superior, Wisconsin in summer 1991 - a promo likely cast off from a Twin Ports station that didn't playlist progressive ambient. Star 6,7,8 and 9 is the "Phase II" version from https://www.discogs.com/The-Orb-Perpetual-Dawn/master/7084. Tape eventually broke after soundtracking endless late night recreations, with the motorbike panning from right to left a particular highlight for the semi-conscious caner.

                        Holy moly! Just picked up a copy of this... wow, where did that bass come from!

                        A special pressing indeed!
