      What was the original pressing made from ? I would have assumed it was a Digital sourced dumped / remastered from the supposed 'cassette' tape sources to DAT originally?? .. which some of that appears to be mythos as if you check out the frequency response of some of these tracks..they go beyond a cassette tape ability. To be clear though.. I haven't had a chance to check out the whole album with digital tools (sonograph) from vinyl source....some of the tracks do sound 'murky' like a cassette. If anyone has a llnk about those details I would appreciate it. My ultimate question is..why would something that was perfect when released in late '92..need to be 'remastered'..?? possibly a redundant inquiry but it's an honest one.

        At first i panicked abit the paper sleeves leave both records covered in abrasions however after a clean in the Degritter it plays back far better than it looks, centered and quietly bar a little noise on side 4. Im happy with my copy but wish they would have used poly liners and charged an extra quid

          Excellently quiet pressing. The inaudible dialogue on side A is almost audible! :P

            Absolutely stellar pressing. Super rich and dynamic sound throughout, never once faltering. This is especially important for an album like this, which prides itself on the atmosphere of the sounds it provides. A must-buy

                This is my favorite project by Richard and the sound and quality of this pressing are stellar. Highly recommend this if your looking for your own copy of this classic.

                  Excellent pressing and sound quality. I’m glad I held back and waited for a time like this. It’s an album you just have to experience listening to it on vinyl.

                    Wonderful pressing my old one from 20 years ago sounds dull by comparison, this remaster is what this music deserves. Really brings out the sense of ambience and space as well as lots of little details that were previously hidden. First rate.

                      Looking for the original cover. I got the original records AMB LP 3922 alone, and now I would like the cover.
                      Does anyone has one to sell or know where i can find it ?
                      Thx
