Early Porcupine Tree recordings ‘Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape’ now available to pre-order exclusively from Headphone Dust1
A newly remastered and repackaged CD edition of the very earliest recordings that Steven Wilson made under the name of Porcupine Tree is now available to pre-order. “Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape” is exclusive to the Headphone Dust online store on Steven Wilson’s official website.
The music was originally released on cassette tapes in 1989-91, then compiled and reissued as a limited CD in 1994, and later on vinyl with one track substituted. This new CD edition stays with the revised 1999 vinyl track listing, and contains over 75 minutes of music. Because of the increasing demand for out of print early Porcupine Tree releases, a decision was made to make this new edition available exclusively from Headphone Dust, and SW has freshly remastered it from the original sources. All the same please lower your sonic and musical expectations for these very early experiments!
This new release of ‘Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape‘ features new artwork and design by Carl Glover. The disc comes in a 6 panel digipack and also includes a booklet with sleeve notes and information about the original cassette releases. No specific release date has been announced for the reissue but Headphone Dust states that shipping will begin in June.
