Full details

Ember Originals is Fantastic Voyage’s new series of boxed sets. As the title implies, each set comprises a number of albums originally issued on the British indie label Ember, which operated throughout the ’60s and ’70s. Each disc will be presented in a reproduction of its original sleeve.This first set is devoted to rock albums, all released between 1970 and 1972, containing repertoire which ranges from mainstream rock to progressive and folk rock. Each album has been remastered from tapes, and comes housed in a mini reproduction of the original gatefold sleeve. A poster incorporates associated images with original release details and notes.

Mint copies of the 9.30 Fly, Knocker Jungle and Blonde On Blonde albums have been known to change hands for £300, £50 and £100 respectively. Each of these three albums has been enhanced with at least one bonus track (including a previously unreleased 9.30 Fly recording). The fourth album, Blue Beard, was readied for release on Ember, but then cancelled: this is the first time it has been released on CD.
