All set I bought it yesterday.

IT'S AWESOME.

I emailed VDP and he said it's coming out cd only this year.

The vinyl/cd pack was limited to 800 copies worldwide.

I got it for $30.00

I bought both Super Chief and Song Cycle todayÖSuper Chief dud come with a cd, listened to vinyl once, loved it!! Sing Cycle sounds great!!! The album cover is a thick cardboard unlike Super Chief, the record sleeve paper has what I think is the original Warner Bros sleeve ad promoting Harpers Bizarre, Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and VDPÖnice touch!

My vinyl arrived today, and so Van Dyke Parks helped me nurse my hangover.

It's probably his finest since Jump but there are some major problems. Why, for instance, does he have an Esso Trinidad Steel Band track on there? Or versions of Amazing Grace that date from the 70's (and have been released as bonus tracks before)? Or, weirdly, do the same trick as he does on Super Chief by inserting Leaning On Jesus somewhat crudely into The Parting Hand? I'd forgive that on EP releases, and I don't mind the re-records of his work, but it comes off lazy if you're presenting this as an album of new work.

That said, if you ignore things like that it's a really wonderful listen - His arranging and orchestration is a marvel throughout, the work on Black Gold and Wedding In Madagascar is top notch. His vocals also sound great, I think he's doubling himself a lot and there's also the return of lush female backing vocals. And the opening half of The Parting Hand.... Damn. It's nearly a  great album.

Very nice album by Van Dyke, though truly new it isn't. He is an amazing artist, you can truly pick out a Van Dyke song by the way he arranges stuff!

I quite enjoy Super Chief, I'm already a big soundtrack/film score fan, so it didn't take much convincing to like this. Just really great orchestrations!

I assume Van Dyke chose to re-record these film cues for Super Chief rather than using the original recordings from the films because he didnít have the rights to those recordings? Itís odd how some of this has a bit of that weird orchestra-in-a-box OCA sound to it, though itís clearly mostly an orchestral recording. Of the stuff thatís not previously unheard, does anyone know which films some of these cues come from other than anything from Two Jakes and Wild Bill?

Also, two questions about Song Cycle: The mono mix is only available on vinyl, correct, no CD? I've actually never heard Song Cycle in mono and can't imagine it. How do you guys feel about this album in terms of mono vs stereo?

And for those of you who have heard the Bella Union 2012 remaster, how does it compare to the 1990 WB CD? If i have the WB CD, is it worth getting the Bella Union remaster? I've read a few reviews that say that the remaster sounds much better compared to the thin sound of the 1990 CD but i wanted to ask people's opinion here. Thanks.

I haven't heard anyone say anything about Song Cycled yet. It released a week or two ago, right? It is just on cd? I wanna get both on vinyl and cd. I went to get it at my record store and they said it wasn't out yet. I picked up at Black Gold VDP 45 since I wanted toget some VDPÖI heard there were other 7" singles put out by VDP but all I'd heard of was this and Wall Street. Anyone know any other singles put out?

Good call, thanks. I'd like to get my hands on the holdback time single, the all golden single, and Wall Street single. I highly enjoy each and everyone of those songs especially Wall Street!

Songs Cycled is available on both vinyl and CD (in fact Bella Union were doing a deal if you bought both at the show last week). However, if you're buying all the singles, you don't need it -- it's just a collection of all the tracks on the singles, with nothing that wasn't on them.

It's weird - one of the tracks is the actual recording from The Wild Bill soundtrack, as is a portion of The Parting Hand from Songs Cycled. Granted, it's probably my favourite bit of scoring from him, but still weird to just hear it in a supposedly newly recorded work.

The Song Cycle remaster is so good. There's such clarity in everything. Pick up the vinyl, it comes with a CD.

Song Cycle came with a cd? Mine didn't. Super Chief did. I'll check again.
