PGR - The Flickering Of Sowing Time

There were several records from this excellent and enigmatic group posted elsewhere, but I have not yet seen a post of their 2nd album. I have a copy, but I had to rebuy it after inexplicably losing my first original sometime in the mid 90's. This newer copy of mine has a lot more surface noise on Side 1 than I would prefer, but I will offer it anyway and encourage somebody else out there to post a better rip on their blog (or in the comments).

I want to note that this is one of my favorite records of the era. Much more varied than any other PGR album, with two tracks that actually approach song forms. But the best moment for me is the title track, an evocative blend of environment and studio. One of the finest things that RRR put out in my opinion.

In that same vein, the Mutantsounds post of the 1st PGR record, Silence, has a skip at 6:20 or so. Would anybody like my rip of a cleaner copy?

Hello there ...

Just attempted to download this PGR album that you spoke so highly of. Would love to hear it, however, the link to mediafire appears to be BROKEN. ;-( (Insert heavy sobbing here ... like Niagra Falls tears).

Would you be so kind as to reupload it? Please give me a shout at the following email address if you are able to or not:

august242 [ a t ] gmail [ d o t ] com

Thanks for your help. Take care.

The link works for me, maybe try a different browser? I use Firefox.
