Found the 'Enhanced' version of Mike Oldfield 'The Songs of Distant Earth' going cheap. The obsessive completist collector in my head insisted that I get it.

Image

This version is from 1995, only a year after the first, original 1994 release which has the cover below. The
newer second version features a CD-ROM layer with graphics that is only playable on an Apple computer (which I don't have).

Image

Since its initial appearance, this has always been a huge favourite of mine. It is an album based on a sci-fi classic by Arthur C Clarke about mankind travelling to new worlds. The music is a sweeping, dramatic, lush recording that carries you along on a glorious atmospheric ride. It is also, probably, the most heavily synthesizer / electronic album that MO has ever made.

What I didn't realise was that the second version sounds quite noticeably clearer and more dynamic than the original edition. I have long awaited the appearance of a remaster and it was there all along! The EQ is different and there might be some changes in the mixing.

Anyway, a much-loved album has suddenly got even better. :dance:
