Legendary Pink Dots - Chemical Playschool 3/4

For people who might have missed this, here are two more early Legendary Pink Dots tapes... this is my very favorite LPD release! Highly recommended!

Chemical Playschool 3/4 was originally a double 90-minute tape, just like 1/2. Released in 1983, the tapes represent a real creative high point for the Dots. When it was reissued on CD (in the mid-90's) one track was left off and others were edited, this version restores over 20 minutes of music! Tracks were taken from the CD where possible, otherwise they are from the original tapes.

Here's Volume 3 side a

Volume 3 side b

and Volume 4 side a

Volume 4 side b

all links fixed (I hope) as of 10/31/10

Hi! I had the same problem with Chem. Playschool 3/2.
Open it with Winrar then --> Tools --> Repair archive.
It did work for me.

The link to Chemical Playschool 3_2 seems to be down. Could you up that one again? Any chance that you list the Only Dreaming and the Premonition cassette too? Thanks a lot!
