The discography at http://www.hulloder.nl/ed-80.html has some details of this '1989'(?) recording, plus the 1988 Duos tape sessions and the subsequent EQ live session.

But one of the duo tracks with Keith T - (3) The Return - is listed in both sessions, whereas you have it and the other KT duet as live recordings.

You correctly list both of these as live - they sound exactly the same and 6 includes the applause at the track end.

(1) & (4) are listed in the disco as being on 'Twos and Threes' - Voiceprint 95 (out of print), as is the version(?) of (3) listed in the Duo sessions.

Any more revealing detail on the rest of the cassette packages?

Cheers, Ewan

Andy said...

@Ewan I'm a little confused. 'The Return' is listed (rightly) on Hulloder as only on 'Trios'. I sent Onx the info so it's possible I've messed up. Life's getting shorter, but please clarify what you think is a mistake.
I'd forgotten about '2s and 3s'. Of course it is made up of a selection of tracks from ED Tapes.

'Twos and Threes'appears to be still available from Amazon marketplace http://www.amazon.co.uk/Twos-Threes-Elton-Dean/dp/B00004XNCB/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1329065443&sr=1-1

Thank You!

Sorry Andy

When will I learn that I now fit the cliche of men not being able to do 2 things at once?

I guess I was wondering about whether the Duos track with Keith Tippett was from the same live set, then got my wires crossed.

Anyway, thanks for these.

I know I'm pretty late to the party, but it is possible to re-post some of the many Elton Dean rarities that you have that were originally on rapidshare but are now GONE? It would sure be appreciated.

This is my first day on your blog. It is awesome!! I have to tell you, though, it was posting CHRIS HEDGES as a resource that made me realize that you and I are friends for Life!

Thanks for this blog!!
