Staggering reissue, long time coming, of what was originally a six cassette box released on Broken Flag in 1985 documenting every last recorded artefact from Ramleh’s original ‘power electronics’ incarnation, here with massively upgraded sound and bonus previously uncompiled material that runs from their inception on 21/5/1982 through to their eventual hiatus on 21/7/1984. The eight CDs contain over 100 tracks that clock in at over 500 minutes of playing time. Each CD is housed inside an individual digipack and all held within a pro-printed 300 x 270 box featuring the classic Broken Flag marine blue and black colour scheme. The set also contains a 60 page glossy booklet featuring artwork, flyer reproductions, lyrics, interviews and other documentation, a large poster and two 1" pins.
Limited to only 500 copies, this looks to be the definitive document of the early Ramleh sound and a massive public service event, providing an ear-peeling insight into the genesis of one of the most important UK underground groups. Highly recommended!
Cat. number: HARBINGER054
Limited edition of 500 copies. Comes in an oversized 10" deluxe glossy cardboard boxset with each CD individually packaged in a digipak. Includes poster, 2 pins, a signed insert and a book.
This boxset was originally released in cassette form on the Broken Flag label (BF40) in 1985. This CD version is expanded to include an additional recording of the Live at Morden Tower show and an additional track in "Fistfuck 2" which was omitted from the original release in error.
The tracks on this collection were remastered by Gary Mundy, Anthony Di Franco and Tim Benson at Opus Studios at various times throughout 2010 and 2011. Some of the live recordings were remastered by Gary Mundy, Tommi Keranen and Steve Underwood at the Broken Flag HQ in April 2009.
