Feel free to visit alphavillenow.com for the complete track listing. The bonus tracks will exclusively be available on the vinyl edition, filling the fourth side of this double album. The songs are demo versions, "actually forming kind of a mini-album of their own" as Marian stated. These tracks sound differently from the final album versions, of course.
It might be that they'll make it to an upcoming dreamscapes release.

It feels kind of odd that its only a limited edition LP,so we without a turntable cant get the extra songs.

Of course there should have been a limited edition CD too.

I'm heading back to Berlin, Poland and Czech Republic in April for vacation, if there is a CD available at that time - I'll pick it up then. If not, then I'll pass on Strange Attractor.

I'm not going to do digital downloads or LPs, I only deal in physical CDs now, sorry.

We are sure.
Can anything be done? Re: is that really necessary? I may be alone with my perception, but I love the challenge of hunting rarities. Nevertheless the web will bring these songs sooner or later to anybody who wants to listen to them.
And CDs - I don't buy them anymore as many of my old originals aren't playable anymore: the data layer corroded and shows holes (underworld, dubnobasswithmyheadman, 1st UK edition, very rare) or the plastic surface gets blind like if the glue from the gatefold cover etched it blind (Depeche mode, in your room 2 CDUcollectors edition). Just to name two out of many which are lost.
All my vinyls are still playable and fine.

My opinion is that songs or records should be able to buy for everyone.
You shouldnt need to buy a Vinylplayer for a lot of Money to get 4 songs.
And if AV dont wanna release a limited edition CD fine,if so they can atleast release them digitally.

I dont have a vinyl player anymore. Furthermore I am not very convinced that the new versions of Around and Handful will capture the spirit and depth of the well known versions on the internet. Therefore I was hoping that the bonustracks would capture that same spirit. In the end I am a bit disappointed with the 30 sec audio snippets and was hoping the original songs will be released in all their beauty...
