Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. A vinyl reissue of The Legendary Pink Dots's Premonition, originally released on cassette in 1982. In the early '80s the whole concept of committing music to vinyl seemed like a noble but improbable dream. It was expensive and unless a label was offering, it was consigned to the experimental band's "bucket list". Cassette albums were another matter however. The Dots had chaotically joined the tape revolution with a couple of releases on their own Mirrordot label and after accidentally wiping one of the masters, decided it was something better left to "real" labels. Hence the band was delighted when Ian Dobson from Flowmotion approached them. Consequently Premonition was assembled; a combination of older and newer songs were placed in an extremely psychedelic collage with a rack of effects tuned and abused with the help of Pat Bermingham, who owned the In Phaze label and a small studio which used to belong to Pink Floyd's Nick Mason. Sadly, Flowmotion ran into trouble after the release and it took a few years before the Dots actually saw a copy the original album.
