I see that the downloadable versions of this will be available on US Amazon 
next week (3/23 I think).  I've ordered it through AB-CD but I'll still 
spend the 6 or 7 bucks to try the mp3s.

Just curious, as I've been waiting for this CD for 3 months. Where did you 
purchase your copy of the Kora! Versions CD already? I've went to Amazon, 
as you mentioned, but it is still listed as a pre-order and it says it 
won't be available until March 24th. Is there some where else that I can 
purchase it from? Thank you. Grant

So, I've only listened once - and long-time readers of this list will
remember that I've often got first impressions wrong. (My disastrous
comments on Dark Magus still play on my mind). So take a pinch of salt 
with
the following.

Good news: it doesn't sound much like the original material (which I've
heard only a little of on-line).

It starts well - the Skankenstein version is fantastic - but after there? 
It
sounds a bit like a half-assed version of Chant to Jah. On "Crazy Things" 
a
sample seems to say "It was a joke". Perhaps it is? Most of the album is
Kirkian dub. But "Burning Reprise" isn't - it's bad ambient or something.

All in all a welcome return for the Cabs name but apart from 1 or 2 
tracks,
a bit forgettable.

Aside: Shiva Records is owned by Amrik Rai who used to own FON Records (a
sort-of precursor to Warp - one of FON's acts included DJ Parrot of Sweet
Exorcist), and previously managed the Cabs. (He also worked for the NME - 
my
google skills rock).

Nice Designers Republic sleeve.

It's growing on me. Louder = better :-) Plus spot all those old CV sounds
hidden away. (OK about 5).

Ah -I remember shopping in the old F.O.N. shop! Think I bought my first Age 
Of Chance 12" in there, thus seeing The Designers Republic designs for the 
first time. 

CV/Kora must be one of tDR's last sleeve designs: they went bust in January 
:o(
