Rubinmusik finally released today…

First mooted back in May 2016, the forty year retrospective of David’s music is released today on Bandcamp…

“Rubinmusik 1977-2017” is a 40 year, 8 volume, 82 track retrospective of the Edinburgh based musician and artist, David Reilly.   The download includes a 106 page PDF booklet containing a new artwork for each piece in the collection, specially created by David In December 2017 to accompany the release.

Included in the set are some of David’s first recordings from 1977, along with brand new tracks recorded in 2017.

There are 23 previously unreleased items, including new mixes/edits and a further 39 newly re-released pieces from across the decades.

The set gathers together David’s solo work as DDHR, Sombre Reptiles, The Heavenly Music Corporation and Cloudland Blue Quartet along with collaborational recordings with Capital Models, Love Parade, The Dancers of San Martino, Call Me Clive, Crazy Wisdom, Creek and Jamie Frain (aka James Jamieson).

“Rubinmusik 1977-2017” has been curated with a view to accompanying, rather than replacing, the currently available Cloudland Blue Quartet 2CD retrospective, “Aftersilence”, issued in 2011 and the now deleted 10CD solo anthology of David’s music, released in 2007.
