Bård Fosse Great stuff, had to buy the 4 cd´s. Saw him live in Amsterdam back in 95 for the first time, playing this :)

Lyman Zerga Anyone with a taste for ambient dub should own this. Music to live and die for. Ambient dub is my bag, and this album is right up there at the top of that bag. The original 3-disc version is all here, plus a couple of extra mixes for added value. The remastering is good, in that it sounds every bit as good as the original - ie, perfect.
The remixes on disc 4 are respectful and appropriate to the original material - which means they just make me want to hear the original versions again!

Nicholas Hall One of my favourite and most treasured albums of all time. I now own the double, triple (cost me a fortune on ebay around 2002) and quadruple CDs. Is there anything finer to meditate to than Kincajou (Duck! Asteroid) ? :)
Toby, I salute your awesome creativity. Favorite track: Kincajou (Duck! Asteroid - Extended Version).

20 years ago Planet Dog released one of the all-time classic albums of modern electronica - Last Train to Lhasa – which reached #31 in the UK Album Charts and #1 in the UK Independent Charts. Misconstrued at the time as a Tibetan-themed album (it actually contains only one Tibetan sample), its groove-inflected, multicultural soundscapes helped to form the blueprint for much of today's global electronica, with its influence evident today in acts such as Public Service Broadcasting.

To mark the anniversary of its release, Disco Gecko Recordings have created a limited edition, physical-only (no downloads or streams) 4 disc box set, featuring previously unheard alternative and extended ambient mixes as well as a handful of fresh remixes by like-minded artists.

Disc 1 features the original fully re-mastered album plus the previously unreleased Eagle, which was created during the album sessions, but for one reason or another never made it on to the album in its original form.

Discs 2 and 3 offer a mix of previously released extended mixes (some from the original limited edition multi-disc issue of the LP) and a handful of unreleased mixes.

Disc 4 features guest remixers.
