Edward Ka-Spel - Tanith And The Lion Tree (CD album)

Finally, Edward Ka-Spel’s genius 1991 album is given the re-mastering treatment, complete with bonus tracks. Ballads coupled with a dark, malignant backdrop. A strange, mystical atmosphere carved out by texture and emotion. Housed in a matt-laminate digipak, this is the ultimate solo album from The Legendary Pink Dots’ frontman. Previously unavailable on CD for 15 years. Digipak.

'An album made with loving care as The Gulf War raged in another part of the World. We watched in horror as the rockets lit up the skies on our primitive TV during long evenings. By day, we recorded."Tanith" is as home-made as it gets; gentle, utterly violent and a frightened lamb on a cross for some of the meaner journalists back in 1991.I stand by it and was delighted to see it remastered and reissued back in 2012 by Cold Spring complete with Elke's wonderful cover painting.This is that expanded version here with 3 new pieces recorded in 2012'.
