This plain white CDr came packaged in a white sleeve with laser printed stickers on front and back. A paper insert contained the following text:

“Back in 1991, the practise was to take a musical idea, a chord sequence, a loop or sometimes just a sound and explore it’s potential. Much of the “Maria Dimension” album was borne out of this process.

The Pink Dots was a 4-piece following the departure of sound engineer Hans Meyer early in the recordings, and each member built his own rig in the four corners of Niels’ barn while guitarist bob Pistoor’s cassette recorder sat centre stage with the red button always pressed down.”

This CDR release captures the secrets of one of those cassettes. Of course there has been sound enhancement and serious editing – listening to it should be enjoyable not merely educational. It is dedicated to Bob whose guitar playing still brings tears to our eyes and who passed away much to soon.”
