  1. That Plaid set is the first time any of those four tracks have seen an official release.
  2. Also still listening to this quite a bit. It's probably my favourite thing of the year. I discovered so many new artists thanks to this eclectic mix. Kudos to BOC - they have immaculate taste.
  3. Ah, I didn't think of that. Love that section of the tape.
  4. How was Interlude (The Elegants - Little Star) (1:48:00) identified as that? They were a doo-wop band from the 50s. Looking that song up on YouTube doesn't sound remotely like the Societas X piece.
  5. ? (strings) (1:54:51) - that's a sensational piece. Sounds a little like Tomita. Heavenly.
  6. 'Bataglia' is immense. Everything on this EP has the old 808 State vibe - amazing considering how long they've been going and the considerable time since their last album. Solid work.
  7. Track listing and cover art. https://bleep.com/release/139672-808-state-transmission-suite
  8. First new album in 17 years. October 11th.
  9. One of the many versions of For All Mankind included an otherwise unreleased track by Brian called "Black Sedan". I've never been able to find out why it got cut.
  10. Arrived yesterday. The original still stands as a landmark of ambient electronic music. Listening to the new mastering, I still got that feeling I had when I first bought this as a teenager in 1987. I'm not sure the new material adds much and it's only really on the last two or three pieces closing the second disc that I think they capture the haunting mystery of the original. Still good to have a reissue but the original album was so immaculately engineered and produced that I couldn't really see the pint of the 2004 remaster, let alone this one. If you've never heard this album, then maybe now is a good time - especially as it ties in nicely with the 50th anniversary celebrations.
  11. @joshuatxuk Kindly hooked me up with Dreamers Cloth as they appeared on the Societas X tape. Bumping this thread because much of this is in the same vein with some BOC Old Tapes vibes on some tracks - and it was maybe an album that quickly faded before people on here had time to hear it.
