Air Re-release Moon Safari 10 Years On

What did I love about the 90's? Being at Uni, still enjoying that lift off moment of being on an aeroplane (this was before I traveled for work) and Moon Safari by Air. If it's not already in your cd/mp3/vinyl/whatver next collection on March 31st, 2008 Virgin Records (and April 15 in the U.S. on Astralwerks) will release a reissue to mark the album's 10-year anniversary. This limited edition album will come with a bound book, a DVD documentary about the French duo called "Air: Eating, Sleeping, Waiting & Playing" a 60-minute chronicle of Air's first tour, an extra CD with live performances and remixes and some previously unseen album graphics by Mike Mills.

So here's the run down on the contents of this limited SPECIAL Air release:

Guess it helps if you're in Australia to begin with or a very nice idea if you're planning on backpacking through.

So without further a do, lets take a trip down memory lane and treat ourselves to a little blast of that classic ever so Sexy Boy.

If you had to pick your favourite albums from the 90's which ones would you chose?

P.S. Currently spending a lot of time in a part of the country lacking wi-fi connections i.e. hospital waiting rooms so please don't expect to much from me over the next few days. Also, I am blogging off my incredibly tiny but amazingly useful and light eee pc so if there are lots of typos, sorry, my fingers are getting used to the small keyboard.

Hmmm...the nineties? I think that the nineties were the decade when I bought the most albums so it's very hard to choose just one out of so many. I'll go with Tom Waits "Mule Variations" as it's been some of my evergreen late night listening for years.

Nice choice and yes it's incredibly hard to choose one album.

I'm a big fan of In The Colosseum from his Bone Machine album.

Still pondering on my favourite album...

Bone Machine is a great album. Another one of my nineties favourites is Ry Cooder's "Meeting by the River." I've just got his "Talking Timbuktu" today which reminded me of the other album.
