Now playing…

August 23, 2010

Just listening again to probably one of my favourite pieces of music ever – the original 1975 version of Edgar Froese’s Epsilon in Malaysian Pale. A bit of a typically silly, overblown title, but just a gorgeous pair of tracks that make up one of the few pieces of vinyl that I’ve always just bought on sight – I’ve got about four copies.

Have a listen if you ever get the chance – mellotrons and field recordings working together beautifully. Steer well clear of the horrible reworking done by Froese himself, I think in 2005 – a stinker, and truly a case of not knowing when to leave well alone.

    Wanna sell one of those copies? I’m still hunting for it, after years and years… :))

      Hi, sorry, I’m afraid they’re not for sale! Happy hunting though…
