℗ © 1993 Rephlex

Issued in a jewel case with clear tray and a fold-out insert including label catalogue listing (winter 1991-spring 1998). Technically there is a slight misprint with the catalogue listing, in that the release after CAT 002 was CAT 007 (the artist (Mike Dred) was a James Bond fan and requested the number instead of CAT 003). The listing has chosen to move that album to after CAT 006 instead. But then a lot of listings will be out of order anyway because Rephlex had a habit of releasing some albums out of order, even to the point of giving out fake release dates after the fact (someone in 1996 asking about exactly when a 1993 album came out would get the original anticipated release date instead of the date it actually released on).
EFA distribution code only to be found on sticker (back cover).

    Classic Richard D. James! No matter if you like "hard" electronic music or not, this album is worth owning. Some will find some of the tracks to be overly repetitive ("We are the Music Makers [Hardcore Mix]" and "The Garden Of Linmiri" particulary), but superb tracks like "On The Romance Tip", "Astroblaster", and the short-but-cute "Pigeon Street" make up for those.

      Release for die-hard fans first. Redefined the words harsh and weird in 1992. For sure one of Richard D. James'lesser known works. Originally released on Rephlex as Joyrex J4 (CAT004), J5 (CAT005) and J9 (CAT009).
      There's a bit of everything here really. CAT005 was the most melodic (beautiful) of the three. CAT004 also features some slower tracks (though nothing here with the quality of Selected Ambient Works Vol.I). CAT009 is pure acidstyle hardcore but unfortunately a bit overly repetitive for my taste.

      If you're looking for more records in this style (with a somewhat similar feel), check out Frost Jockey's 'Burgundi Trax vol I& II' on Planet µ or Mike Paradinas' earlier work ('Bluff Limbo' in particular if you like chainsaws through your speakers!).

      For those of you owning the Rephlex-reissue of this material, I would advise to get those vinyls out of those plastic sleeves ASAP!!! Seems like the plastic starts interacting with the vinyl in a nasty chemical way that could (and will!) damage your records as far as I can tell!! No good reason to let thát happen, now is there?
