Archived treasure

Way back in 1991, Hyprtonia World Enterprises in Norway issued a cassette compilation in a shiny red plastic case and a startlingly bright yellow double-sided sleeve that folded out into an A4 sized poster: It contained two tracks from the first The Speed Of Sound release - from when we were known as The Blood Oranges - and has just (yesterday) been digitally archived with free download here:

The 29 track album with 21 artists was a bestseller for HWE and a constant feature in their catalogue, you can pick up the digital copy for free in the link above.

Ours were recorded on 24 track reel to reel Ampex tape, at Real To Reel in Macclesfield. 

Ancient history!

Thanks to Tape Attack for archiving it.
