More Details:
Issued in a 6-panel double Digipak sleeve with white trays and a 16-page booklet. CD 1 first issued 2002 on the bonus CD Camphor. This was remixed by Sylvian for this release. The original versions of these tracks were released on Plight & Premonition. CD 2 first issued 1989 on Flux + Mutability. This release is announced as being remastered, but has no credit for on it. Track durations do not appear on the release. With new, previously unseen, photographs by Yuka Fujii, accompanied by an extensive essay by David Toop.

Probaly the most underrated ambient albums ... ever! At last they are re-released for a whole new world to find them...

Plight & Premonition is my favourite, particularly Plight with Czukay's hands all over it. Swirling, troubling ... it 's as atmospheric as atmospheric gets. An ancient ex-Koln cinema, for that was where it was born, in Czukay's studio; cold winds and Cold Wars, distant whispers of foreign radios, foreign lands, foreboding and of another life, another time. Beyondness, beyond this life ... it takes you to that 'other place', beyond our comprehension. A neverending woodland just beyond the city where the life beyond this life never finishes.

Flux + Mutability is a quieter affair, more melodic I guess, more poetic. Ethereal and delicate.

Both releases encourage multiple listens for you find more and more from them each time you listen. Well I did.

Price: £18.99 (UK Sterling) (UK Postage Inclusive. OUTSIDE UK PLEASE CLICK HERE).

2018: in stock. Still sealed. Comes with an exclusive set of 4 Sylvian/Czukay postcards. This will have to go 'small parcel' - hence the slightly higher price - as it has to be protected as the digipak is so delicate. If it is sent out just in an envelope it will arrive damaged - I've seen this with the Kate Bush Before The Dawn digipak which is similar in terms of packaging - so it just has to go 'small parcel' rather than 'large letter' where it is protected by strong card from all sides. Worth paying a little extra for.

Payment can also be made to Lenin Imports by cheque, po, money order, cash by registered mail. Or bank transfer. Please e-mail here (ihuppert5@aol.com) to request bank details. Please enclose title of item ordering and return address when ordering via cheque.
