Limited vinyl LP pressing of the first Cold Waves of Color volume. A must-have collection of English post-punk rarities, sourced from the legendary Color Tapes label, all presented on vinyl for the first time. Cold wave, electronic synth pop, and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes archive, recorded between 1981-1985. This edition has a different colored sleeve and comes with a poster insert (the poster is also slightly different to the first edition pressing). A superb album, compiling electronic synth pop, cold wave and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes label, spanning 1981-1985. The Color Tapes label was the brainchild of a young Gary Ramon after being inspired by cassette labels such as Fuck Off Tapes, Weird Noise and other underground UK labels; also by the music of the late '70's and early '80's such as Cabaret Voltaire, Suicide, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget, as well as electronic musicians such as John Cage, La Monte Young, Stockhausen, Pierre Henry, Moondog, and others. The tracks from this compilation originally came out only on limited cassette runs of 100 copies sold at gigs, mail order and record shops.
