      more than 290,-$ ?!!?! Jesus! I really LOVE records but seriously: who spins a record everyday which he bought at this price? I am happy for everyone who missed out back then. I gave mine as a gift to a friend when it seemed impossible to ever get a copy. Now I can get a new one. Nice. but even if not: I can be moved by the music even if I listen to my cassette copy. Emahoy Tsegué-Mariam Guèbru spent her life selflessly to create this unique and touching music for us and used it to help people. Why doesn't that inspire people? Tolstoi once said "some people walk in the forest and all they can see is firewood..."

        Is this really getting a repress or it's only that is?
        edit: I emailed them and this will also get a reissue this month

          I just pre-order the two LP on Mississippi Records on Amazone, scheduled release on April 25, price for the two...39 euros;-)
          You can forget your quack prices ;-p

              We need a repress or someone that is willing to sell a copy for 100$ max. :(

                A repress is scheduled? Any info??? It could be great.

                  what is the source of the record? Needle drops? Original tapes?

                    Somewhat disappointed that Homesickness is not the classic version, but a more meandering, less engaging version. Still beautiful music, and glad I was able to get a copy for relatively cheap

                      Re Zygatto October 4, 2020:
                      "I spoke to someone at Mississippi Records this past week and they said that a repress is coming! Sounds like there was some difficulty getting the rights for the music but its on its way!"

                      I hope so, cuz I've been tempted, and I really don't wanna be the guy that spent $100 on this record.
