"Albatross (The Orb Remix)"

Fleetwood Mac via Chris Coco to The Orb...

We're sure most of you won't need an introduction to the major hit "Albatross", released originally by Fleetwood Mac in 1968, what some of you may not be aware of is that back in 2002 Peter Green (founder member of Fleetwood Mac) hooked up with British DJ/Producer, musician, journalist & broadcaster Chris Coco to record an updated version for his debut album "Next Wave".
Here at Real Balearic we thought we'd take this beautifully balearic tune and give it a new twist from the pioneers of ambient house... The Orb. Originally formed by Jimmy Cauty and Alex Parterson in 1988, their early work in ambient music, soundscapes and science fiction set a bench mark in ambient house. The Orb's current line up of Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann have continued that trend with this delightfully reworked deep progressive ambient house remix. Their subtle use of samples adds a touch of electronica whilst keeping the authenticity of the original version. Proceedings slowly travel through soulful rhythms and peaceful sounds, all guided by Peter Green's beautifully blissful guitar line, to the point where we don't want this adventure to end. A short vocal concludes the track and allows us to wake us up from this exhilarating dream.
Also included on the release are the original re-workings from the single released by Chris Coco in 2002.
