Cracking album - always my fave ADII record, which I have recently managed to restore from the original 1973 vinyl on CD and lost all the clicks, pops and frying sausages, which is nice!

Thing is, it reminded me of something that always puzzled me. Anyone know just what the "choir-organ" mentioned in the track listings is? It sounds a bit mellotronish, but I don't think it is one.

Also, anyone got the lyrics to Sleepwalker's Timeless Bridge?

Yes, a terrific album! One of their very best, for sure. Thumbs Up

I imagine the "choir organ" was a mellotron, or something very similar -- the tapes used in those could be changed, I believe, so i imagine voices could be substituted for strings.

I thought I read those lyrics on an ADII website, once. Let's see if I can find them now. (STB is my fave song on the album -- simply marvelous! Love it!)Cool

Nope -- sorry: I looked and looked, but I cannot find those lyrics -- but I'm almost certain I read them once....

Peter, compare your CD to the remastered "Repertoire" one
and tell me which one is best

"Deutsch Nepal" has some strange and funny lyrics; here the translation:
"A General stood at my cradle, spoke: 'It is a beautiful child. He is going to be a man like I love them, gouvernor perhaps in German Nepal'. I was born in the land of warriors.. umm... warriors, try hard... umm...try hard to be a hero. But the victories are still keeping me waiting... waiting. Maybe he was wrong, the general... general....general".

Sorry, Oliver, but I have neither version on disc -- I have the LP, but it's 1500 miles away, in my home province.Cry

Would the remastered one be a good choice? (Perhaps I'll order it.)Smile
