4 stars This album was finally re-issued recently as a deluxe 2-CD set, with all the original material from the 2-LP set plus some bonus material. The original CD release deleted several instrumental tracks so that it would fit on one disc. There are a lot of great musicians (Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, Mel Collins, B. J. Cole, and some Japan-mates) helping DS make this a wonderful release with two distinct feels. First you get the songs, a few of which rank with the best he's done. I especially like "Silver Moon". The instrumental tracks are reminiscent of some of Brian Eno's work with Harold Budd or "Music For Films"-era stuff, except that they may have a bit more sophistication and instrumentation. The sound quality is excellent, and the remixed version of "River Man" is better than the original.
