    I would love to see this album reissued also on cassette -- since it began as a cassette, there would be something satisfying about that.

      This has now been reissued on vinyl by Light in the Attic. CDs are also available direct from their website at $14 - much less than what I paid for a second hand copy a few months ago!

          Just received my preorder in the mail and, at least for me, Empire really rectified their past pressing mistakes on this. No real complaints on this pressing so far!

            I received my replacement yesterday and there is still some surface noise, albeit less surface noise. I do appreciate EOS making the effort though.

              Just got my hands on a fresh new copy of MFNPC on cd from Japan and its a really beautiful release. Some may at first listen think this Japanese musicians freshman's debut is simplistic, naive and or boring. I contest to all that!
              What you do get is a very personable warm and tender recording of bare essential almost zen like instrumental music performed on what I surmise is a Fender Rhodes and perhaps a very minimally used primitive synthesizer as a background accompaniment. Notes are chosen conservatively here and utilized to make simple compositional statements.
              The music hearkens Eno's stripped down ambient music with a focus on neutrality and non-invasive melodic content drawing the audience into very quiet spaces where silence is music and music submits to silent gesture.
              The music is all from 1981-82 so its very early in Yoshimuras output and nothing like the minimalistic tour de force of say Green. The remastering is done with panache and no additional coloring is added. Unlike alot of ambient music you've heard marinated in studio reverb this recording has next to nil. Please Empire of Signs more Hiroshi Yoshimura re-releases on cd there is a buying audience ready to fork over the $$.
