The deluxe Rhino Handmade 2-CD version of Chris Bell's I Am The Cosmos is now available. If you've heard it, please post a review. Or at least let us know if it's essential, interesting, or for completists only.

I don't think it's released until 9/28

supposed to be released on 9/14. first 1000 copies come with a copy of the 7" (obviously not an original!).

thanks guys for the update on the date...any insiders with review copies feel free to weigh in early...

I'm really hoping that the "alternate mixes" on disc 2 are the ones I heard years ago - more sparse & raw than the versions released on the CD.

Bruce Eaton said...

Chris really did like to experiment with overdubs...one reason why Radio City has a much sparser sound than #1 Record (in addition to there being one less bandmember). I'd definitely want to hear the more sparse / raw versions.

I'm really interested in any opinions of the second disc of this -- the $40 price tag is leaving me kind of cold . . .
