RTW Sonically, this one is so adventurous, and listening to it is like eating a rich chocolate cake. You can tell that the days of EK's spare Casio waltzes were just about behind him. I think it's the use of percussion that truly sets it apart. Despite supposed plans for another volume after this, this was the last major China Doll release. After all, "Tsernikowskijari China Doll" just doesn't have a good ring to it. Favorite track: Hotel Rouge.

about

EDWARD KA-SPEL-Khataclimici China Doll

One of the most joyous solo recordings EK can remember.
For sure the actual songs were written and laid down on tape in the small untidy room which EK inhabited in Amsterdam at the end of the 80s. The 8-track tape recorder occupied the centre of the floor , the mixing desk was next to it. Wires were everywhere.No chairs...
Despite all that Barry Gray turned the place into a palace with his simply stately guitar, and the desire to experiment was intense.
Nevertheless, the best part was in the mixing. A REAL studio in Aachen. Christoph Heemann and Achim Flamm from HNAS firing ideas to turn an already psychedelic record into a full-blown peyote ritual in the depths of the jungle.
Remastering has been subtle this time around as the original sounded good.
Thanks to Christoph for his magnificent artwork too.
A physical cd reissue is also planned for the future on the mighty Beta-Lactam Ring label.
