10 tracks. Following on from the great success of the recent re-release of the landmark Ultramarine album Every Man and Woman is a Star, LTM has a limited number (300) of CD copies of their 1990 debut "Folk." These copies are of the collectable expanded 1994 edition on the bespoke Offshore label, featuring early 12" versions of Stella and Interstellar. The superb, surreal sleeve art is by Crepuscule designer Benoit Hennebert. Reviews: "A lavish mix of light, occasionallymesmerising rhythm, recalling lazy afternoons and summer seascapes. Antiseptic is a mind-opener and a floor-filler in one. Folk is their debut lp, but already they're dealing in orgasm inducement" (Melody Maker, April 1990). "The accordion meets an acid groove in a kaleidoscope of oddness" (Time Out, May 1990). "Stella is in a different ballpark. Gorgeous ambient house with a subtle pulsating beat. An almost folky feel with a vocal refrain about the "deepest part of the soul," which this touches" (New Musical Express, May 1991). History: Ultramarine formed around the Essex-raised duo of Paul Hammond and Ian Cooper in 1989, releasing the album Folk before recording the ground-breaking EM&WIAS in 1991. Subsequent albums included United Kingdoms (1993), Bel Air (1995) and A User's Guide (1998).
