5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Facts for your Consideration, 2 May 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Transmission Impossible (Audio CD)
I think it's important to point out that your previous reviewer has leapt to a couple of misleading conclusions about the origination of this album and "Auchtermatic". These are the original mixes, Billy's originals, and contain no "posthumous" contributions from anybody. Simon Raymonde and Malcolm Ross do not feature anywhere on "Transmission Impossible", there is no such studio as the Auchterhouse; Auchterhouse is a village near Dundee where Billy had a house. The tracks featured on both albums existed - in their entirity, long before "Beyond the Sun" and "Eurocentric" ever did. There was no such "band" as Outerpol, it was a concept that Billy talked up for a while, but the only track ever recorded for the project was "Outerpol (Consenting Holograms Have More Fun)", which has never been released. Its nice that your reviewer likes the albums, but if one is going to set oneself up as an encyclopaedia, one ought to be a little bit more aux fais with the facts.

And one could spell "au fait" correctly, maybe. Top album though!
