Omigawd!!
Thanks for this...The last time I went to the UK (1983!!)this album was on my list-of-things-to-get, of course by that time all I could get was the remixed/rereleased version. I stumbled over the original many years later in an obscure local bookshop, in a dusty box at the back of the shop and thankfully in mint condition!! I then lost both versions in a fire....

Love Billy and everything he did with A. Rankine. His solo album "Beyond The Sun" is one of the masterpieces of modern music, actually a pearl in my record collection.

Thanks for that, interesting to hear. I like the more acoustic and open sound of this version, but on the whole I think I still prefer the the remixed version. Now all I have to do is find a decent copy as my old cassette doesn't run too well these days.
