A new series of vinyl-only releases, "from the archives." Islands In-Between was originally released on cassette in 1983. Indonesians often use the name Nusantara, meaning "the islands in-between," when referring to the archipelago that forms their Republic. This LP covers only some of the cultural activity on Java and Bali, the best-known islands out of the 13,700 counted by statisticians, so it is not intended to be in any way definitive. The selections are more like musical postcards of two cultures balanced between tradition and tourism. Legend: meridian 105 - 115 east. Cut by Jason at Transition. Edited by Jon Wozencroft, Mike Harding and BJNilsen.
