Preludes Airs and Yodels

Preludes Airs and Yodels


An excellent compilation of the very best of the PCO drawn from all the previous records. It also contains three versions of the classic 'Music for a Found Harmonium' - the PCO original, a storming version by Patrick Street and a remix called 'Pandaharmonium' by The Orb. It also contains a rarity: a short piece called 'Piano Music' which has only appeared on 'The Penguin Café Orchestra Mini-Album', a 26 minute long 'interim' album released in Japan in 1983 and featuring four tracks from previous albums and two unreleased pieces. Simon's description of this record as a 'primer' is very appropriate. (Virgin - 1996)
