Offered for sale is a still sealed orange vinyl UK pressing of the 2 LP set On the Sunday of Life by Porcupine Tree.
About this copy: This copy of Up the Downstair is a limited edition 180 gram orange vinyl pressing on the KScope label, issued in the UK in 2008. This is a reissue of an album that was originally released in 1992.
The double album is still sealed; the records are presumably new and unplayed.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.
Background: Originally released in 1992, On the Sunday of Life was the debut album by Porcupine Tree. The album received relatively little notice at the time and did not sell well.
Porcupine Tree’s debut is really one big in-joke, which actually makes for a better reason to record something that pretends to be profoundly deep through and through. As released, it doesn’t make mention of the tracks’ origins as the supposed product of a mysterious cult psych/prog rock band, but the packaging and artwork (even the fonts) would make the Dukes of Stratosphear proud. …Meanwhile, the many instrumental pieces are simply wonderful, pastoral, ambient rambles, drum solo jams, and more. It may all be ’70s-era Pink Floyd for a more knowing time, but as a genre exercise and on its own, On the Sunday of Life is still a great debut.
