The Orb - The BBC Sessions 1989-2001


NEW RELEASE: The Orb - The BBC Sessions 1991-2001. Despite my having the Strange Fruit Peel Session CD from 1991, this new repackaged and remastered 2CD offering has brought together a large slice of the Orb's BBC sessions into one easy to listen package. The track listing is as follows:

CD1:
1. A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld (Loving You)[John Peel Session 3/12/1989]
2. Back Side Of The Moon [John Peel Session 3/12/1989]
3. Into The Fourth Dimension [John Peel Session 3/12/1989]
4. O.O.B.E. [John Peel Sessions 12/5/1992]
5. No Fun [John Peel Sessions 12/5/1992]
6. Once More [The Evening Session: 1/3/2001]
7. I Am The Red Worm [The Evening Session: 1/3/2001]
8. EDM [The Evening Session: 1/3/2001]

CD2:
1. Plateau [Mark Radcliffe 12/7/1995]
2. Oxbow Lakes [Mark Radcliffe 12/7/1995]
3. Towers Of Dub [Mark Radcliffe 12/7/1995]
4. Montagne D'Or (Der Gute Berg)[John Peel 14/2/1995]
5. Perpetual Dawn [Lamacq Live 12/10/1998]
6. Egnable [Lamacq Live 12/10/1998]
7. Assassin [Lamacq Live 12/10/1998]
8. Toxygene [Lamacq Live 12/10/1998]
9. Little Fluffy Clouds [Lamacq Live 12/10/1998]

Highlights for me are the remastered versions of AHEGPB, Backside of the Moon, Into the Fourth Dimension and a superb version of O.O.B.E. The only track I would skip is the appalling No Fun, which is exactly as it it named, no fun whatsoever...
