Big City Orchestra / The Legendary Pink Dots - Tryst 7



Cassette, C60
Label : Ubuibi, US, 1994
Limited edition of 200 numbered copies
Riped by jx


From the booklet : "The Legendary Pink Dots side of the cassette is entitled "The Politics Of Excess". It contains Edward's 8-track cut-up of many, many old Dot songs, along with Phil's manipulated samples from the eight track. This was mixed live 11/92 in their attic in Gendt. Having had so much fun on the first mix, a second attempt was made. These were both so lovely and quite different (though it uses the same material), that I could not choose which to use for Tryst, so we do the most confusing option and use both. Half of the Tryst will have Mix One and half will be Mix Two / (...) Since the Pink Dots got to do two mixes, so have BCO".
That post being the rip of one tape, it contains only one mix of each artist / side. If you have the other ones, please don't hesitate to share ! (Another rip of the cassette is available here, but these are the same mixes)
