Ah so the first compilation Dark Side of the Moog
now available in the UK.
The release date was moved back. It was funny last autmun I was going to ask
Ron Boots why nobody had compiled the hard-to-get series (Second-hand copies
were GBP 20+), especially Klaus releasing his archive on La Vie Electronique
only to discover the following day a box set available for pre-order on
amazon.co.uk. Prayers answered.
I'm in a mixed mind over the TD Reims/Mannheim bootleg. Reims wasn't as good
as the hype. Having recently bought some modern TD live concerts, there's quite
a contrast from the improvised to the highly orchestrated.
Thinking of Edgar, three months ago I too was delighted to find an unadulterated
boxed set of his early Virgin recordings. My vinyl recordings have languished
unplayed for a generation. It's great to hear Aqua
and Epsilon in Malaysian
in the original form.
Recent `spins' includeHoward Givens & Craig Padilla
-- Spirit Holy Rising
(free download)Steve Rothery
-- The Ghosts of Pripyat
(similar vein to last Pink Floyd)Redshift

Looking forward to getting the new Sverre Knut Johansen
