With all the Eno EG reissues happening in the past couple years. Any chance this one will ever see an LP reprint from the analog master tapes? This is an absolutely PERFECT record.

I wonder if any of those CD reissues was mastered specifically for the purpose from the original tapes or if it's just a straight recording from the vinyl original version.
Does anyone know how it went?

I have a copy that is a mispress with Gavin Bryar's 'Sinking of the Titanic' on side one.

Only one word needed really and that is Essential, pair this up with a decent set of headphones and an eye mask and you'll feel like a different person by the end.

A vignette of celestial sound channeled thru Budd and the accompanied musicians. This is ambient music for the soul without the heavy crutches of synthesized sound. Very warm and diatonic music with a timelessness woven thru-out its fabric. I tend to lean towards Eno's and Steve Roaches style of electronic ambient music but like everything in life there are exceptions and this one is just that. The choice of instrumentation aside from the reserved musicianship is key to how the everything comes together so well Rhodes piano, harp, vibes, voices and sax. Nothing is over the top and the chord voicing's just rise and fall like the reflection of the moon on water. A true masterpiece of music in the Budd catalog this one IS necessary listening indoctrination.

The instrumentation of the twinkling harp and keyboard melodies along with the moody saxophone on track 1 is genius.

I think this would be a more enjoyable recording without the moaning, ghostly vocalizing.
