At last, the classic Pacific Ocean Blue is going to be released on CD! I've ordered my copy.

I wonder if there are still albums which have not had a CD release out there?

Actually Des, POB was released quite early on in its original format but not great mastering quality, apparently.

This is the full deluxe reissue treatment, and fans are delighted to learn that it includes many tracks from his unfinished second album, Bambu.

Not sure what this has to do with 'World Music' though! Or am I about to peer into another can of worms?

Thanks Rupert. Sounds like a fab CD.

And we do talk about other music here - there was a thread about the song Brown Sugar a while ago I think. Although I could be wrong.

Sometimes we don't even talk about music! Sometimes we don't even talk. However, I have never been accused of that.

I have a bootleg copy of the original CD issue - I once had a non-bootleg cassette of the album - and it's a pleasant album for BB fans (of which I am) but not the "lost classic" Richard Williams and others are trying to make out. It's very much an album of its time - lush 70s LA flavours and very stoned. Enjoyable but not comparable with the really great stuff the BBs did. I'm quite interested in hearing the previously unreleased tunes but not enough to run out and buy a copy - maybe Des can post a review here that touches on them?

Admittedly, I also find Pet Sounds and Smile overrate - I Get Around being what Nik Cohn picked as their high point and I'm never felt the need to disagree with that. Obviously, many BB fans may strongly disagree!

I love Pacific Ocean Blue - but there again I always liked Dennis Wilson's contributions to BB albums. I will certainly review the unreleased tracks when I get hold of the CD!
