15 years of The Orb

Although you can probably take the ambient genre back deep into the 70s (think Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream or indeed, John Martyn), ambient went overground around 1990/91, with the release of two albums – the KLF’s Chill Out and The Orb’s Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld. 15 years on and the latter gets a deluxe reissue as a 3CD set.

Originally a double album, The Orb’s first album sounded (and still sounds) like nothing else – and because of that, it’s hardly dated. This limited edition offers a digitally remastered edition of the original, plus a John Peel session from December 1989 – apparently the most requested session in the history of the show.

You can pick it up as of today, priced around £17 (or £12.99 at Amazon).
