From the LPDs Summer 2009 Newsletter:
THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS/ The Maria Sessions (CDR)
Back in 1991 , every note played by the Dots was captured on a tape recorder which was literally never switched off. Some of the more inspired improvisations were worked on and turned into songs which found their way on the Maria dimension album.
This CDR captures the very best of those sessions and features some of the most wonderful guitar work from Bob Pistoor that you'll ever hear. A perfect companion release to Maria Dimension itself, this literally brought tears to our eyes when we played the finished version recently.Highly highly recommended- everything unreleased and unheard outside the Dots.
A TOQ CDR ...it costs 13.50 euros plus postage. Availability IMMINENT
THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS/Desmet 04 (CDR)
A radio broadcast in 2004 before a tiny audience in an Amsterdam cafe.
Crystal clear recordings interspersed with snippets of interview plus the material the Dots played in the cafe AFTER the radio show was finished.
Songs included are "Isis Veiled", "Our Dominion", "12th" ,"The More it stays the same" and a few others.A quiet beauty....This TOQ CDR costs 13.50 euros plus postage.
EDWARD KA-SPEL/THE SILVERMAN/ The Whispering Whale (CDR)
Again ,fine recordings from 2004 featuring Edward and Phil improvising with " The Whispering Wall" album in mind. It's wild and loud and at times utterly uplifting.Again, this one comes recommended .All pieces unreleased and unheard outside Chez Dots.
