Bass Communion - Ghosts On Magnetic Tape (cd)

Now in its fifth pressing, Ghosts On Magnetic Tape remains the best selling Bass Communion release, and is rated by some people (including SW himself) to be one of his best albums, becoming quietly influential in the experimental music scene.

Ghosts is a 5 part suite of dark organic textural music, using intricately manipulated recordings of acoustic instruments and the now familiar Bass Communion trademark ghostly crackle of old vinyl records. Inspired by Electronic Voice Phenomena recordings, the album has a spectral and eerie quality.

Mid-price single CD version, now in a digipak.
