Selections from the 2 cassette release, all wrapped-up onto a CDR.

Acclaimed compilation of original specially commissioned material covering the unique range of music from the 80s experimental underground. Originally issued as a 2 cassette set (A: melodic synth and cosmic music, B: experimental synths and electronics, C: rock and new-wave underground, D: avant-garde and industrial).
   Originally planned as a numbered edition of 500 copies, only 200 or so were actually issued as such. Some were also sold as single cassettes in regular cases (approx. 20 of each). Excess covers/stickers have been used for the various cassette and CD-R releases (this and the "Escape From The cage" series).
   The CD-R version collects all the (unavailable elsewhere) material that we still have the licence for on 1 disc, remastered from the original tapes.

The cover art was by the late Peter Harrison, and the inspiration for the title too, which was a deliberate misquote of “I am a cage, in search of a bird” by Franz Kafka, and a dedication to the paintings "The Therapist" 1937 by Rene Magritte and "Bird Cage" by Slavador Dali.
