Steve Jansen/Richard Barbieri: "Lumen" on LP

Postby Quiet Visitor on Fri Feb 27, 2015 7:58 am

A Kscope vinyl release of Lumen, a recording of the solitary Steve Jansen/Richard Barbieri concert from 1st November 1996.

Performing songs from the duo's Stone To Flesh, Stories Across Borders and Beginning To Melt albums, the show was recorded at the Milky Way as part of the famous Dutch Magazine OOR's 25th anniversary celebrations. Jansen and Barbieri were joined on stage by Mick Karn and Steven Wilson.

Although the concert wasn't intentionally recorded for release, after hearing back the direct line stereo mix, Jansen and Barbieri decided it contained elements that brought the studio versions to life in a unique way. There were no options to alter anything from the 1996 mix, but pleased with the recording, the duo released it as a limited edition run of 500 cassettes in the late 1990s.

All that is heard on Lumen is what happened on the night, warts and all. Lumen is, in every sense, a true live album.

180g heavyweight vinyl with cover artwork designed by Carl Glover.

Pre-order for 11th May release.

Well, I always kept my turn-table and after it was out of tune I bought a new one last year.

I don't buy a lot of LP's (mostly still CD's), but sometimes I find one I like, often with a CD inside, like Daniel Lanois' latest one or Efterklang's Piramida. And of course my old LP's get a chance again to be heard.

How great is the last Lanois album " Flesh ad Machine ". The track " Opera " gets a good run in my household :)

Just got the Lumen-LP. Inside was also a KScope-flyer, in which the album was first announced as "The Night Gives Birth".

The music sounds wonderful from vinyl. I had a transfer from the cassette on CD, but this is so much better.
