An horrid English dance production with an historical TEB track!

If you don't have fear to confront yourself to the Horrifying Land of Contemporary Music Market, you can buy a new compilation with one of the most famous TEB tracks in - "Fleance", from the original 1972 "Macbeth" soundtrack.
In this recent double CD "Art of Chill 6" (Platipus Records DCD PLATCD225 2, distributed in England on November 2009), where "art" is really a wasted word to use for a ugly thing as this, for about 15.00 euros you can have 31 tracks played by great musicians as Tim Buckley, Velvet Undergound, Beaver & Krause, Suicide... and less great as Yazoo, Goblin, Gentle Giant... BUT MIXED by I Monster (??!!)!

Despite the promotional notes ("Groove Dis Exclusive. British production team that specilizes in psychedelic, electronic-tinged pop confections often based around samples from odd sources, mainly easy listening records. Born out of early WARP bleep culture and IDM, they come back w/ this 2 disc 31 trx mix of incredible diverse chill tunes") this remixed TEB track (based on the 2003 remixed version) is a real monstrosity, believe me! (anyway you can check by yourself listen to some samples at http://www.groovedis.com/shop/Various-ART-OF-CHILL-VOL.6-IMONSTER-DCD-p-220649.html).
So, please, save your moneys & make some free downloads or buy another copy (CD or vinyl, doesn't matter...) of the original "Macbeth" soundtrack...
(I hope at least TEB musicians can get some royalties from it...)
