Gonna expand on this later with track names (mostly done this now) but I just relistened with the sun coming up over Wales' only motorway, trying to think how I felt about it when it came out. On reflection it was everything I wanted at that time. If anything that maybe its only fault: that for once Richard gave us what we wanted/expected:
> Another version of the seminal Analogue bubblebath one mellow vibes - 008971AA1
> Polynomial c type trance versions - 216061, 942937 & 00890569
> More didgeridoo esque b side cornish death techno tracks- 55278037732581& 00897A2
> Some stripped down minimalism, when it still seemed exciting and maybe the future - 1993841, 0180871L & 008971A1
>Our first glimpses of SAW2 outside of quino phec - Untitled
Loves it matey. It was like Manna from heaven for us that had heard Didgeridoo and Xylem Tube and wanted more techno that sounded like that, because let be honest, no one sounded like it.
I truly cherished this album at the time and had both the CD and Vinyl copy, which as a 13 year old with a paper round was extreme dedication. If Rich added a couple of tracks (or even just the vinyl version of 216061!) on the bleep store I'd buy it all over again too.
(Thinking back further if I remember correctly the vinyl came first and I was chuffed to pieces to get a CD version with extra tracks and without the stereo split thingy. Love to go back and see the joy on my little face, I still remember the moment I got the CD, Spillers Records Cardiff, Saturday morning. Lush times)
