The next one in the series of classic Rapoon albums reissues is ‘The Kirghiz Light’, which was originally released in 1995 on Staalplaat. This is a unique position, because it was since sold out for a long time and fetched high prices on few auctions. It is also one of the most interesting Robin Storey albums from the beginnings of his activities as Rapoon, where strong ethnic motifs are combined with atmospheric passages.

Originally a double album, this reissue has been extended with an additional album entitled ‘Our Calling Light’. The source material used here was original demo recordings for ‘The Kirghiz Light’, which have been reinterpreted giving it a whole new sonic space.

The cover was designed by Maciej Mehring based on Robin Storey’s paintings. “The Kirghiz Light” was mastered by Łukasz Miernik. The whole production process was overseen by Michał Porwet.

The CDs are housed in a 4-panel digipak sleeve and the album is strictly limited to 500 copies.
