AMONGST THOSE CLOUDS was the first cassette-only ep by ELYSIUM. It contained their first two songs recorded at Rendezvous, John Ratcliff’s south London studio in March 1982, together with another two songs recorded at Ambiance Recording Studios, Burgess Hill, in January or February 1983. Joined by saxophonist Ron Howe, their first vinyl release came in September 1984, the ‘Summer House’ b/w ‘Through Flak & Flak’ 7”, recorded at Ambiance Recording Studios again. One song from these sessions entitled ‘Emporium’ remained absolutely unheard and forgotten. Until now.
We have gathered these seven early songs to create our extended vinyl rendition of AMONGST THOSE CLOUDS, presented as a limited, hand numbered edition split in two vinyl colours; 80 copies in cloudy translucent and 120 in standard black, housed in a matt finish sleeve with a double sided insert and download code.
