I agree that at times they were a bit underwhelming. Feeding The Flame remains the one that really "stuck" for me. The Epic Garden Music CD (with loads of bonus tracks) is something I enjoyed a lot when I first bought, but have never felt the need to play again. I picked up "In The Breeze" on vinyl (I don't think it was released on CD) a couple years ago and it's got some really early stuff on it, I think, which was in a bit of a different style. I'll try to dig that one out this weekend as I always meant to go back to it and never did. Come to think of it, that might be a really good idea of something to put up on my blog...

I guess there were only two threads, both short and both started by Bimble.
Reviving this one to note that there's a comprehensive box set Cherry Red's putting out of the band's whole recorded career, with the group's participation, liner notes, etc. Copy arrived today and it looks very nice indeed. The clamshell/paper sleeve box set approach really has been an amazing boon.

Feeding the Flame was a good choice for this afternoon's slow plod back up the 405 for my commute home.
I don't often play these guys, but when I do, man, they really scratch that one particular itch very nicely. Flangers and digital delays set for that glorious dotted eight. Fantastic stuff.
Alas, I'm a little upset that I've searched this topic and found Ned's very informative post about the box set, which I now must own.

Just got the Where the Light Shines Through set in the mail today and a cursory look over the tracklistings for each disc and the very informative booklet reveals that this band was a lot more active and fragmented than I had taken them to be. Seriously, the timeline of all the different members in the back of the booklet is just dizzying to wrap my brain around.
I was also a little dismayed at this passage from the booklet: "Sure, there are a few live versions and re-recordings left off, but nothing you really need."
To which I say, NOT TRUE! The re-recording of 'Imagination' that kicks of the CD version of Feeding the Flame is seemingly not on the box set and it has always been my preferred version of the song.
