Kind of a slice of genius here by FLF.not sure why they never did anything even close to this.haunting, beautiful,and utterly original.

There is no way, absolutely no way that this was limited to 200 copies.look at the prices earlier pressings have commanded.a deluxe double vinyl repress on coloured vinyl should sell out in hours.three weeks on and it's still in stock.
I know, it's about ... See full review

Can we agree that all the comments here have been about pressing numbers and quality? Fair enough,we are going through a bad time in terms of pressing quality,but it needs to be said this is an outstanding album.i don't usually but this kind of thing but ... See full review

This came out at a time when you could walk into your local record shop and get a stone cold classic every week.even then it was special though.

Must make these artists feel good to see the demand for their music on vinyl,the format which was choice at the time but which has fallen in and out of favour so many times seems we are now witnessing an 'out of favour' situation again with so ... See full review

The track 'watermark' is,for me,the single most heart breaking melody of all time.i was in my early teens when I started to listen to Enya,and if I hadn't I'd probably not be listening to the likes of nils frahm et al now,so thankyou Enya for introducing ... See full review

An astonishing selection of tracks here.the voodoo people track 'co-incidence' made famous by Paul oakenfold on the goa mix cannot be found anywhere else on vinyl which is a shame.

How can a record selling for £65 not have any comments??? Worth having just for the extended version of 'daniel'.the track before it 'moon and moon' is also beautiful.

Easy pay cheque for Sasha here I reckon.mind you,if you're given such time restrictions what can you expect.i suspect however that those gravy boat days are a distant and sweet memory,as the mixes are for the listeners.
