What about the earlier Time Machines CD released on the Eschaton label by Coil? Wikipedia has an article on it:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Machines
...and that article has a link to the All Music page on the same, original release:
https://www.allmusic.com/album/time-machines-mw0000033724

It was released in 1998. Clearly it is the original, and this one is not.

Listening to The Cosmic Jokers' Gilles Zeitschiff album (see http://www.discogs.com/Sternenmädchen-Gilles-Zeitschiff/master/1287), I have become convinced that it was a big influence on the direction of Coil's Time Machines project and in particular the music showcased on this release. The heavily-treated female spoken word parts on 'Circulating' especially, to me, bear a striking similarity.

I could of course be wrong, but thematically and musically the parallels seem too numerous to be coincidental. Give it a listen if you're not already familiar with it - it's an excellent album in its own right.

This Coil album will always hold a very special place in my heart as I was lucky enough to be there that magickal night at Cornucopea on The South Bank. I couldn't figure out at the time how they were able to provide me with a recording of the night's performance as I left - swift work!

If this is an " unofficial release", then I assume it is an illegal or pirated CDR?

where's the cover? there isn't one.

this thing is something else entirely. parts of it came from time machines, parts of it only occur here, all of it is organized in a way that is contextually local. you want to conceive of yourself as floating through time when the record is playing...

the album begins in some sort of purgatory, a path into some alternate reality or perhaps a trip down the rabbit hole. a steady, mechanical sound keeps space-time moving beneath you while events fly by you in weird and wonderful ways. you end up in some circular quadrant of the universe - one inhabited by the queen of the circulating library, who lectures you on many things in between displays of fireworks. you are let off that merry-go-round and thrown into perpetual turbulence, perhaps eventually subsumed into the birth of a new star.

the literary references are to aleister crowley, if you are impressed by such things. the only pre-requisite, however, is experience with psychedelics.

i do not believe that this particular record is for sale or ever was except on one specific tour. i would highly recommend the album as a great download.

You really had to be there .no record can do justice to one of the best gigs ever. just wish i'd enhanced the experience.Still, this is a superb cd to PLAY LOUD.
