500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl. Comes with a four page insert. "The time is anytime for this love story. A ship is dipping trough the sparkling blue sea, sitting on deck are Tristan and Ysolde. We have never seen or heard an album like this before. The music is stunning, the original package was outstanding, the whole presentation just beautiful. I am sure this album Tristan was not produced to sell. It came in a hand-laminated 10" tape box, a booklet with all the lyrics, and two 10 inch hand-cut acetates. The concept of the rock opera Tristan reminds me a lot of the two 12" acetates of Shuttah - The Image Maker Part 1+2. I am sure both albums were produced in an excellent studio with pro-musicians to help seal the deal for a release on a big label. So some promo guys out there should have some original copies. The music is electric folk with a progressive touch, much better than most albums we have heard from Britain. Male and female vocals, a wide range of instruments, great percussion and first class guitar, plus organ parts. Some songs are more acoustic, some electric. A well balanced mixture of an underground concept album which beats most other UK albums of the same kind. This album is a pure surprise. We just love it."
