Porcupine Tree - On the Sunday of Life

On the Sunday of Life is the debut album of English progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released in July, 1991. It compiles tracks that Steven Wilson produced and recorded for two cassette-only releases, Tarquin's Seaweed Farm (1989) and The Nostalgia Factory (1990). The rest of the music from these tapes was released three years after in the compilation album Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape.

Most of the lyrics were written by Alan Duffy, a school friend with whom Steven Wilson had lost touch a few years before the album was released. The album title was chosen from a long list of nonsense titles compiled by Richard Allen of Delerium Records.

A small run of 1000 copies in a deluxe gatefold sleeve were released in early 1992. The album, over time, eventually sold in excess of 20,000 copies.

 

The plugin used relies heavily on HTML5 for mp3 playback and so far I get acceptable results only when using Google Chrome. I hope licensing issues will be solved for Mozilla Firefox someday.
