    Dark Entries is doing a historically important service by reissuing Patrick Cowley's music. This comp of his porn/prog/dance tracks is wonderful. The man deserves to be remembered for being a pioneer EDM/IDM player, producer, remixer and label owner. From when it was a crime (and sadly, often a death sentence) to be a gay man and into disco. Patrick Cowley is the bomb. For fans of Cybotron, Kraftwerk, TG, TD, house music, euro-disco...

      I like the songs on this album. But when I opened the vinyl, the entire album fell out of my hand! The gatefold is totally gay and I'm straight! I knew that Patrick Cowley is gay, that's no secret and anyway it's all about the music and not the sexual orientation

        Now if they’d only reissue Elevator to Eden the world would be a better place

          Found this one used for 1 euro sealed.. the pictures inside the gatefold were interesting to say the least.. but the music is fantastic!!

            Is it me, or does this sleeve scream for ring wear?

              These Sounds are insane. What a genious in music. One of the most interesting Documents of an Artist pressed on superheavy quality.

                  From beyond the grave is the darkest and melodic double LP from the technological wizard "Patrick Cowley'. Unreleased (until now) the music presented here is truly out of this world. Originally used for underground films in the early 1980's this is the 1st time these tunes have been heard in any realistic audio format. Painstakingly archived from original master tapes this is the only way you will hear the imagination and depth of a genius that has since passed away.

                    This has to be one of the best releases of 2013! Fantastic music, some of it quite atmospheric and experimental, puts another light on musical genius of late Patrick Cowley. Dark Entries did superb job with covers, inlets and mastering. Must-have!

                      Wow, FANTASTIC! As a great fan of Patrick Cowley I love this album released aprox 31 years after Cowley's death on 12 november 1982 (RIP).
                      It is amazing to see how Patrick's music is timeless. I really ask myself sometimes in what way Cowley's music would have been developing should he still be alive now ...
                      Anyway: thanks for releasing this exclusive material !
                      The release is very complete with an envelop and extra information about the two (gay) movies School Daze and Muscle Up (VHS-video's) in which this music was used (with permission of Patrick bytheway).
                      According to Josh Cheon (Dark Entries Records) 1.500 of this album were released (un-numbered).
