    Hard not to need a back-up copy, each track eminently a standalone collectible. For me there’s a stirring appeal to ‘ambient’ beats from this period, an innocuously flirtatious pysche-shift to the heavens. Fit for purpose.

        Remarkable album, took me right back to the 1990s when I listened to ambient ‘intelligent techno’ as I called it. Great sleeve notes from Piers Harrison, too. Worth every penny.

          I nearly broke down in tears listening to Global Communication's Arcadian at full volume. This has been one of my favorites since buying AI II double CD on a trip to London as a young man. It was always my opinion that this track along with Black Dog's Cost II that defined the Boards of Canada style that became so pervasive. Fluresence is another with a strong history to me.. Lovely packaging - I can tell whoever put this together cherishes this sound just as much as I do. Thank you so much.

            this is so good. the music is outstanding. Psychedelic, moody, subtle. get it if you can.
            the packaging is wonderful too. 10/10.

              A great place to get that Dubtribe Sound System without dropping 80 to 100.

                Sure to get a repress... I think I read an interview where one of the Music From Memory guys was saying they try to keep stuff in print, they always reissue

                  If i bought every MFM i'd be dead ass broke but this one is well worthy for the collection and to live a long life beyond our mortal souls

                    Both tracks on Side C play great on both speeds. 45rpm for the club, 33rpm for the living room.

                      Not just a great compilation but the pressing quality is immaculate. MFM deliver yet again.
