^Oopsie - didn't check the link for some reason and it's really not good. Eek! Thanks.

A strange mix of Mike Oldfield's 'Sentinel' track. An ambient piece. Have this on in the car at the moment. From a 'Best of' compilation. Can't decide whether I like it or not??!!??

…. Moving on from my folk and country odyssey!! I’ve been interested in Robert Reed’s new release, Cursus 123 430 for a while now but there are very few clips available to listen to anywhere so I have bought and downloaded the digital version. Not my favourite format but what can you do? The postal service is even less reliable than usual which is not reliable at all, so it’s not worth buying anything that has to come from outside of the country right now – it would be a miracle if it arrived. 

This comes with no frills whatsoever, not even a track listing, or segment listing which I can see in other places. I did, however, get the cover artwork. There’s a symphonic poem attached to the whole thing (which is a concept by Les Penning who also wrote it and narrates it where there is voice), but that doesn’t seem to be included in the download for some reason?? Not sure how I feel about this digital malarky – would far rather have a physical copy, but oh well … needs must! Here’s the symphonic poem (or some of it) which I don’t have - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA_nJm_O8I4, and this is the only segment from what I do have that I can find on YouTube ...

Not a fan of everything Klaus Schulze does - some of his works can be very repetitive but I like this track - 'My Ty She'

^I have one album of his which is a bit difficult to listen to. He doesn't believe in short tracks does he?! This one is compelling - sounds so seamless and otherworldly. I like it a lot. A real slow burn! Thanks for the post.

You definitely have a way with words. 'Slow burn' is a brilliant description for this music. Cuts to the chase. And I like it a lot as well - have listened to it a number of times over the last few days. Something about it just grabs me.
