An absolute masterpiece, the whole album, but "The Song" is the definitive version (by RW !)

A strange one - as most of Blegvad's - but this album shows a masterpiece, as least his germ, for the real achievement could be heard in John Greaves's "Songs", as sang by Robert Wyatt : "The Song" is a jewel ! "A recipe, a remedy, a cure"

The Miniature #2, from 1991, appears here under the 2003 reedition, and not in his former place ! Bizarre, and false.

Why does this one appears under this 2003 reedition in HR discog, and not the first edition of 1991 ?? Why ?
posted a comment on Piers Faccini - My Wilderness. 3 months ago
I agree : a nice, solid album ! One of his most coherent, the best one for me .... he seemed to me a kind of studio wiz (which he is too) so i was very surprised by his talent and energy on stage (plus it was a duet ...)

Exactly this and that, but "1995 Green Linnet Records, Inc" on the bac bottom seems to make this date of release (1994).. false. Plus, on my copy, IFPI reads 2F85 , or maybe 2F65 ( but those miniatures could be hard to decipher !)

Fantastic music !!! But the tracklist above is ... wrong ! Look at one specific edition, for exemple the French 2003 one, for an exact tracklist, which is the original running order - missing in former editions - of the concert held from 00:10 to 2:45 am ... See full review

Japanese edition, ok, but clearly made, printed in the EU ! It's written on the CD, on the obi and on the back (which incidentally, doesn't mention the 7th track, the added "Cerecka"). Anyway, it is great music !!

Why not merge this version with the LP master release ?? Just ask MartinR
