Emotional Rescue continues with it’s second “Cosmic” classic on the label, in The Ganges Orchestra’s, The Dream. Arriving at a time of increasing blurring of music genres, the original EP mixed the cusp of New Age and classical Indian music with a dance beat to create an ethnic-pop classic.
Created and released on the pioneering “World Dance” Indipop Records of Steve Coe and Sheila Chandra, theirs was a desire to experiment this Asian fusion of Eastern song with Western rhythms.
Having met with success via the Sheila fronted vocal group Monsoon, reaching the top 20 with Ever So Lonely in 1982, it was The Dream that found favour with more discerning DJs. This included not just Daniele Baldelli during his Cosmic residency, but also Balearic and left-field DJs across Europe, leading to the EP becoming highly sought after and increasing hard to find.
Included on this remastered EP is the relatively unknown The Calling. Essentially a more ambient version of The Dream, it has been extended especially for this release, while at the same time the original’s EP flip cut, Meditasian, is here is found in shorter form to round off a beguiling release that can now be fully appreciated once again.
