58 quid is a lot, and is the DVD region locked?

the theo brown boxset came with a dvd that was region free so i'm guessing this will be the same. the dvd is usually some stan brakhage type footage with an edited version of the music to act as soundtrack.

I'm possibly a few releases away from getting pissed off at coughing up so muich for a flexidisc. Admittedly the accompanying literature is excellent but come on, for the price I'm paying would a vinyl 7" be too much to ask?

^^ to be honest, this release was less about the music and more about the book. this album is only 35 min long and about 15 min of those are people telling you stories about the black dog

 

the book on the other hand is 80 pages and includes a dvd. so the music is a very small part of the project

Thanks for the update! That's always been one of my favourite releases on Folklore Tapes but i'd missed out on the initial pressing. Copped!
