Jale's first full-length had the edge that I love in this type of music. Dreamcake was only on black vinyl domestically (and the U.S. pressing has gotten more difficult to find). The European vinyl was on both black and yellow marble vinyl, with the yellow marble version limited to 1,000 copies. The European version was mislabeled - it said "SP137/317"...this is wrong. It is really supposed to be SP127/317. Trust me. Both European versions are pretty common.
