Love Road (Live Edit) 4. Chocolate Sushi (Summer Edit) 5. Fataca Estalaris (Interlude) 6. Baby Bombay (Remaster) 7. Agora (Live Edit) 8. Disjointed life (Boom Edit) 9. Summer Somewhere (Live Edit) 10. Best Days (Tribal Mix) Fresh from the Baboon clinic comes a collection of tracks from previous comps that are yet to reach the dubby pages of Bandcamp. The mixing with organic natural sounds means you have the soft chirrups of birds in your ears while thick dubbed beats surround and carry you away. The only track I've heard before was the original Love Road on the Hommega 20 year comp. With no other knowledge of their works I can say I really did enjoy the experience and will be playing parts of this album to wake up, to bed and for my next autumn walk. In fact if I had to walk through an autumn park for the rest of my life this is probably the soundtrack I would want drifting into my ears. Some tracks are slow and sensual like Chaotic Shapes & Baby Bombay, while others have the full strength of psychedelic downtempo driving them forward like Disjointed Life and plenty of tracks give you both as you'll notice in Summer Somewhere. If darker ominous tracks are your thing then I'm sure you'll enjoy listening to Keep Positive will help rough your positive anti-brooding personality up in just the most enjoyable way. The Love Road (Live Edit) has some extra zips and zaps throughout it that make it different enough from the original and Chocolate Sushi somehow morphs into a track with elements of reggae riddim. Whether its house influenced pulsing songs or silky layers designed to drift you away to calmer places the Baboon Clinic has you covered. All in all every track here is distinct and enjoyable it's hard to pick favourites as a lot of songs are quite apart form one another but the ones I mentioned are definitely up there. Oh did I mention that it is 'Name Your Price'. We call that a bargain where I'm from. https://zenbaboon.bandcamp.com/album/collected
