I am not usually excited about the Record Store Day, but sometimes it does have some pretty exciting releases. 2014 was The Field's From Here We Go Sublime. And this year? It is none other than The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld for me!
I will be in Melbourne this weekend and will certainly check out the record stores in the CBD. If you come across a copy somewhere, can you please, please, please post a note here so I won't miss it? I would really like to get a copy!
2016 Record Store Day Release
The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld (4LP set)
Sounding as fresh and innovative as on its original release in 1991, The Orbâ€™s debut long player celebrates its 25th anniversary this yearâ€¦ and what better way to do that than with this sumptuous 4LP set?
An ambient dance odyssey packed with a wealth of memorable samples from sources as various as the cult â€˜Flash Gordonâ€™ movie, Ennio Morriconeâ€™s haunting â€œman with a harmonicaâ€ theme from â€˜Once Upon A Time In The Westâ€™, Rickie Lee Jonesâ€™s talk of â€˜Little Fluffy Cloudsâ€™ (the subject of much controversy at the time) Grace Jonesâ€™s â€˜Slave To The Rhythmâ€™, NASAâ€™s Apollo missions and Minnie Ripertonâ€™s soul classic â€˜Lovinâ€™ Youâ€™.
Presented in the original landmark artwork â€“ where the use of images of Battersea Power Station nodded to the Pink Floyd psychedelia of old and collided with the modern 90s aesthetic of the Designerâ€™s Republic- the package is rightly regarded as a milestone of modern dance psychedelia.
