The Orb – The BBC Sessions 1989-2001

by · October 19, 2008

NEW RELEASE: The Orb – The BBC Sessions 1991-2001. Despite me having the Strange Fruit Peel Session CD from 1991 in my Orb-Collection, 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.

I might be a little cynical about The Orb these days, hey! Deluxe versions of U.f.Orb, Adventures Beyond… Cydonia and Orblivion, same music in a new plastic box, all about the money? I am a hardcore fan of Orb and i crave for some new fresh music from the Orb! Let’s turn back time some 10 years Alex and Kris with some talented producers like Youth and Lewis… Those were the times! They made music that blew you hair back! Only wishful thinking from my side.

I guess I’ll be picking up this CD eventually when it hits my face in some store, but it’s not one of those rare Orb CD that you go turning the internet upside-down to find [...]
