Title: Corona - Tokyo Realization
Format: CD
Label: Columbia Japan
Country: Japan

Recorded in Tokyo, 2006. "To be performed, Takemitsus score must be realized, either ahead of time or improvisationally; what ORourke plays here is his own Tokyo realization of the piece; there is also a well known London version recorded by Roger Woodward in 1973, reissued on CD in 2006 by Explore Records." --Seth Tisue. Booklet includes a 34 x 48 cm foldout print of a 1969 painting by Fumio Nambata.

Title: Old News #5
Format: Double LP
Label: Old News
Country: Austria
Price: $26.00
"Introducing a nearly regular series of vinyl albums documenting analog synth and tape works (both studio and live) from the depths of Jim ORourkes archive, spanning a near quarter century of active duty in the field. Old News #5 kicks off with "Pedal And Pedal," a refined beauty of a live set at Tokyos Super Deluxe, to only be followed by a massive blast from the past in the shape of the monstrous "Detain The Man To Whom," recorded in 1992. Record two delivers the genuine weirdness of studio session "Its Not His Room Anymore," backed by the ripping "Mother And Who," which is an alternate version of what would become ORourkes live set at the 2003 All Tomorrows Parties Festival in the UK. Available only in this format." -Old News

"A tape composition from 1992 (originally released on CD) now issued in a revised LP version on Three Poplars. Limited edition clear vinyl in a special dyecut sleeve with insert. 1000 copies. ... As I walked out, I thought Ive really started now, and I dont know where I am going to sleep tonight. I felt excited, but also a little unhappy and alarmed. I wished I had not started out in the evening. I had been planning my tour all the weeks that I had walked to and from school in the squalid London streets. I thought, I shall get away from all this and wear only a shirt and shorts and not go near anyone for weeks and weeks. I had a longing to hide myself in some very isolated place, and I thought immediately of the Lakes. I wanted to go to them, but cant remember what made me finally change my plans and go to D. instead...." - Three Poplars.

"American musician and producer Jim ORourke continues the Touch Sevens 7" vinyl-only limited edition series with an epic, two-part track recorded at Tokyos Steamroom, May 2008.

The label chose not to specify the RPM, encouraging listeners to experiment with playback options and personal preferences. Artwork and photography by Jon Wozencroft." - Touch.
