DÜN: Eros (Soleil Zeuhl 33) CD
DÜN: Eros (Soleil Zeuhl 34) Vinyl
It is NOT a repress of the CD from 2000 but a new and completely reworked edition.
Udi Koomran has done a brand new transfer from the 1981 tapes and he did a (brilliant!) new mastering which brings a new light onto Dun’s gorgeous album.
A new bonus track has also been added (all of the bonus from 2000 are still included) : a 1979 studio rehearsal of “Arrakis”.
This is THE definitive edition of this all-time French classic!
Dun “Eros” is also the very first Soleil Zeuhl vinyl! It comes in a very limited edition of 300 numbered copies : thick cover, insert (repro of a late 70s Dun poster), 180 gr. white vinyl and it includes 2 download cards. One provides access to the CD-only bonus tracks in mp3, the text & photos of the CD booklet and to a pdf file of the poster ; while the other offers an 85 minutes Soleil Zeuhl compilation (mp3).
Anonymous quote from Progarchives.com :
"Eros" was the group's only album. Recorded in 1981 and based on a popular concept written by Frank Herbert ("Dune") the band would become as some sort of reference with the track "Arrakis". All the tracks are consistently good, even on through the bonus tracks. The four studio tracks smoke from beginning to end. Like most Zeuhl music, the bass and drums play a very dominant role. Another remarkable feature of the album is a strong flute presence. Personally I think that "Eros" is one of the best instrumental progressive albums made to date. Superb and essential masterpiece. Very strongly recommended!!!
