That's right. I came across the 1975 reissue in my favorite record shop during a visit to my old hometown and figured it would be good enough to hold me over until I happened upon an original press.

The minimalist vibe continues... just played the ambient/psybient classic, World of Sleepers by Carbon Based Lifeforms (the album which inspired my new custom desktop theme).



And now I've moved on to Global Communication's epic 76:14 LP.



And next in the queue - Future Sound of London's elegantly organic Lifeforms LP.

Currently listening to a regular weekly radio program I always try and catch: "The Golden Apples of the Sun".

Golden Apples of the Sun « RTRFM / The Sound Alternative

Lots of psych-tinged folk, sometimes very mellow, sometimes slightly scary, but always interesting.

That music would not sound at all out of place on that radio show.

Might be the influence for the radio show's name, in that case.

The phrase comes from "The Wind Among the Reeds" by W.B. Yeats -

Quote:
“Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.”
And thereafter was used by many including Ray Bradbury, Subotnick, and the fantastic NYC band, Silver Apples -

^^ Correct. And that particular stanza of the poem is generally spoken at the beginning of each episode of the show, and it often appears again during the show in some form. There have been at least three different settings of the poem to music - same lyrics, different tunes.

Good to know! Although I'm pretty sure that Silver Apples was Subotnick inspired since they're so similar and geographically/historically close to one another.
