I have it on CD and it's a brilliant album, but I was just surfing the net and found out that on the vinyl there are four songs that aren't on the CD:
Silver Moon over Sleeping Steeples
Camp Fire: Coyote Country
A Bird Of Prey Vanishes Into A Deep Blue Cloudless Sky
Sunlight Seen through Towering Trees
I found a CD re-release with all the missing tracks and a couple of remixes on top of that, but is it worth getting for those four tracks alone? I also remember there being an all-instrumental vinyl version of the album, is that true?

Has anyone heard the original album?

If I remember correctly, the four songs missing in your CD are all instrumentals.
If you're a Fripp or Sylvian completist you should buy the new edition, the sound is better and it is the complete "experience", as it was meant to be; the original album consisted of 2 Lps, the first made up of songs (1-7 of your CD), and the second Lp was completely instrumental (rest of your CD plus the 4 songs on reissue).

Thanks. I guess I'll have to buy the new CD, unless I happen to find the vinyl for a reasonable price.
