Format:
4LP SET
Label:
UMC
More Info:

The Orb’s debut long player from 1991 celebrates its 25th anniversary this year… and what better way to mark it than with this sumptuous 4-LP set? An ambient dance odyssey packed with a wealth of memorable samples from sources as diverse as the ‘Flash Gordon’ movie, Ennio Morricone’s haunting theme from ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’, Rickie Lee Jones’s talk of ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’, Grace Jones's ‘Slave To The Rhythm’, NASA’s Apollo missions and Minnie Riperton’s soul classic ‘Lovin’ You’, it comes presented in the original landmark artwork - where the use of images of Battersea Power Station made a nod to the Pink Floyd psychedelia of old and collided with a modern ‘90s rave aesthetic.
