mysticwolf75 I bought this sampler on CD in 2004 and it led me to eventually buy all of the CDs that the excerpted tracks were from, most importantly, Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces. An excellent introduction for those new to Steve's work! In fact, this release along with Day Out of Time and The Desert Collection Volume One are a good starting point for anyone who doesn't know where to start with Steve's vast catalogue of releases.

about

The first 20 years — an introduction to the soundworlds of Steve Roach
2022 edition.
Essentials 1984-2004, Space And Time offers an overview of the first 20 years of groundbreaking recordings from electronic / ambient pioneer Steve Roach. Excerpting tracks from his Projekt Records releases, Roach hand-selected and edited these pieces into a thematic sonic flow — it’s an ideal insight into his vast recorded history. “Space” and “Time” are two themes that run constant in Roach’s music. Rich with emotion and nuance, his sound creations evoke a strong sense of atmosphere while simultaneously altering the perception of time within space.

From the expansive, time-suspending landscapes reflected in releases such as the now classic Structures from Silence (1984) and the epic 4-CD Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces (2003) to the fire-breathing, rhythmic-shamanic expressions woven from all things electric and organic on The Serpent’s Lair and Early Man (both 2000), Roach has earned his position in the international pantheon of major ambient-atmospheric-electronic artists. Fueled by his prolific nature and uncompromising approach, Essentials 1984-2004, Space And Time invites the listener on a 90-minute journey into the extraordinary soundworlds of Steve Roach.
