Request to any Orb fans
« on: February 18, 2004, 10:58:22 AM »
My search has been in vain, so this is my last hope.

Does ANYONE here have the Orb's "Blue Room" CD single, the one with the 40 minute mix on it? And if so, could they hook me up with an MP3 of it? Space isn't an issue, I can just give them a login on my FTP server to give it to me (and if I have anything they want, fair play). It's just my beloved CD of this, when my fucking DVD drive died, it MELTED the disk. There's a huge melted spot. Not the actual disk surface, the material UNDERNEATH the surface has melted rendering the disk totally fucked.

I cannot find this version anywhere on the net and was hoping somebody here might have it.

I don't have it but I have a vague feeling my brother does (we're both going to see them in Sheffield in May 8th).

That's really the best I can do.

Super nice.

Unfortunately my work FTP access has just been taken off-line The uber-geek has come in with a new router so it should be a couple of days - or this afternoon - I'll keep you posted.

As for the rarities I have -

Anthology 1 and 2
Morphology
OObe Adventure companion
Ultra rare tracks
a whole bunch of singles
and 3 more CD's I haven't even ripped yet!

<edit> I now have FTP as I ripped out the old router and shoved the old one back in</edit>

Oh that's smashing.

http://www.theorb.com

A new 12" EP is coming out called 'Kompassion', which should be interesting. It has songs which have been really well received called Masterblaster, and Aftermath.

Seriously, you want to get in touch with my brother. Whilst I'm an Orb fan, he basically buys all the stuff, and I, the whore just rip the stuff onto my PC.

EDIT- Woops. Kompassion is already out. It's Komplott I'm thinking of.

The Orb really piss me off sometimes with the weird way they work.

Ee, he's a wee scamp isn't he?

Thanks Geej!

Not sure I have any rare stuff. We'll chat via PM. It's been a while since I listened to much Orb, but found my butchered CD the other day, wept a little in memorial, and decided to try and track it down.

Thanks folks! VW comes up trumps as always.
