Customer Review

on 5 April 2012
Here we have five unadulterated Edgar Froese albums, in their original form recorded for Virgin Records and issued without the sonic vandalism usually associated with Froese reissues. The real jewel here is the original `Epsilon In Malaysian Pale', which has been unavailable on CD for many years. `Aqua' and `Epsilon' both sound sonically improved (specificaly missing some clipping/distortion which plagued earlier CD issues). `Ages' has its best track `Golgotha and the Circle Closes' restored for the first time on CD, and `Stuntman' and `Pinnacles' flow nicely into each other...so, 6LP's worth for £12. Bargain !

There are also 4 bonus tracks scattered around within the set, each taken from the LP `Edgar Froese Solo 1974-79' and previously unissued on CD. The annotation of these is a complete shambles: `NGC 891', and `Pizzaro' would appear to be correct, but `Epsilon' (from Solo 1974-9) is actually `Tropic Of Capricorn', and `Tropic Of Capricorn (from solo 1974-79)' is actually `IF 810'.

Why EMI can't employ one of the legions of TD trainspotters out there to check these things I don't know.
So there you have it, brilliant sounding, great value and subject to the easily avoidable careless mistakes we have become accustomed to.
