More Info

"Im Original erschien "Dondestan" 1991, um dann sieben Jahre spter in einer berarbeiteten Version neu verffentlicht zu werden. Es markiert den Beginn der bis heute andauernden Songwriter-Partnerschaft Robert Wyatts mit seiner Ehefrau, der Knstlerin Alfreda Benge. Auf "Dondestan Revisited" ist der ehemalige Schlagzeuger von Soft Machine das erste Mal seit langer Zeit wieder an seinem Instrument zu hren; von der musikalischen Stimmung her schliet "Dondestan" an "Old Rottenhat" an." [Indigo]

"Originally released on Rough Trade in 1991, DONDESTAN was an entirely solo and somewhat subdued-sounding album of distinctly personal and openly political compositions, many of them arrangements of poems by his wife Alfie. Re-released in 1998, DONDESTAN (REVISITED) is a re-mixed, re-sequenced and re-mastered version of the original that invites a total re-appraisal of what is now an album that ranks with the best that Robert has ever produced. Contains 18 minutes of video material." [label info]
