Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

Unleashes an unprecedented collection of artefacts from our Journey To Atlantis, including re-recorded versions from our source cassettes of the 'Rough Mix' and 'Sentinel Demo' plus hours of previously unheard versions of tracks during their writing phases in the band's farm rehearsal studio.

The Track List runs in reverse chronology with the Rough Mixes (re-digitised) at the start, followed by The Demos (again re-recorded from the original source material.

Then we present developmental sessions from 1983 and 1982 recorded at the band's farmhouse hideout, plus a long section where the original concept is talked and played though!

Also here's also a very different track - a jam from the farm m 1983 with Niall and Ronnie plus Mike B on Roland Space Echo!

Plus we've added a mix some 21st Century re-visits including a small extract from an early version of 'Ghosts Of Atlantis' from the soon to be released 'Fragments Of The Sun' 'Cinematic CD'

With over 50, yes that says FIFTY, tracks you will see that the released album is but a shadow of what should have been had it not been for severe 'commercial' pressure from EMI

This week we are compiling extensive notes and lyrics about the various periods covered in this release!

This really is an immense collection from a very productive time and your buying it will aid the production of the new full-band CD and help mitigate possible additional costs of the now rescheduled tour in 2021

It is a matter of record that both the band and EMI were not happy with the final mix that was made by Eddy Offord after the band had left the studios in Atlanta.

Eddy had been approached to mix a Police live album and subsequently rushed ours.

In the UK that mix was released but a new mix with a considerably different sound was completed for the US mix on Capitol Records and subsequent reissues.

Here is "Track By Track" breakdown from band members of the original release

After the release of Arrive Alive the band spent much time in their rented farmhouse rehearsal and recording facility deep in the Aberdeenshire countryside and then gave up their day jobs as record company interest was growing.

This gave them time to develop tracks for what was intended to be a double album based around a concept, though it was not intended to be one of those 'one track a side' affairs, but more a collection of tracks in various styles and lengths.

As can be heard the grandiose plans for a double album were tempered by the record company executives along with the imperative for the snappy radio play oriented material...these demo tracks hint at what could have been and contain the intended framework for the detailed storyline for the concept.
