Wow[edit]

Wow... some info on the origins of this song's name: BBC Sound Effects No. 26 - Sci-Fi Sound Effects. Found thanks to "what links here". I'd never even considered if the name was original or not - it just had to be! (and isn't. hehe.) --kingboyk 21:28, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

We should be thankful everyday that The Orb gave us this unique opportunity to use "Blake's 7" and "Minnie Ripperton" in the same sentence! --Thetriangleguy 22:54, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
I feel grateful every time I see "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From the Centre of the Ultraworld (Loving You) (Peel Sessions)" on the Winamp display :) --kingboyk 23:05, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

"Lovin' You"[edit]

Do my ears deceive me, or was the Minnie Riperton sample at some time replaced with a soundalike (but not as powerful) session singer? --kingboyk 22:00, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

MWS017R[edit]

The a-side of the white label only Wau! Mr Modo release of the single differs from the actual Big Life release. The original version didn't have Mini Riperton on it at all. Instead it starts with a police style siren, waves crashing, as the song begins (where it normally kicks in with the beat after Ripertons singing) the beat kicks in after only 20 seconds, with a sample of what sounds like a tree falling over and crashing into water.

This white label version was never officially released. I was in correspondance with Andy from Wau Mr Modo around 1990 and 5 copies of this pressing 'escaped' from the pressing plant. They were marked only with a sticker "The Orb - MWS017R - Radio play single only" It was between MWS017T and MWS017R being released that the deal was signed with Big Life, and they pulled MWS017R before it was officially released.

They then re-released both original 12" and remix 12" (and CDs) a few months later as BLR27T, BLR27R (12") and the CDs as listed on the page - but this time with the Mini Riperton sampled version of the remix 12" and 'compactdisco'


The original sleeve for the Wau Mr Modo release of MWS017T is printed in blue and purple. The Big Life version has a light and dark blue print (no purple).

So :

  • MWS017T - track list as shown.
  • MWS017R - A side (unknown name - tree crashing intro)
B side (unknown name radio mix - tree crashing 3 min version)
aubrey mix mk2 (as Big Life release)
  • BLR27T - track list as BLR 27OCD
  • BLR27R - track list as BLR 27CD (i.e. first time Mini Riperton sampled)
  • CDs as listed

Rather than stick all this up, I didn't know if someone owns the edits to this page, but it seems important as it covers the transition from Wau Mr Modo to Big Life and explains a version exists without Riperton samples at all - ok so only 5 of them - but I have one which surfaced as new in a record shop in Glasgow in the mid 90's! :) Baz whyte 21:25, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

"2 Fat Italians" and other necessary Refinements[edit]

Does "2 Fat Italians" refer to Orb members Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty? I notice this phrase being used when I look on the Discogs site at the producers, and on the sleeve under More Images. They are also referred to as "2 Fat Belgians" on the Kiss EP. I'm almost certain the producers are being credited informally, but more to the point, I can't find any source that directly states such names are credited to Paterson and Cauty.

Moving to another topic, I was going to suggest that (in a dot point after where it says "Released January 1990") "Aubrey Mix Mk 2" is sometimes marketed as "Aubrey Mix Mk 11". I don't know whether this was a printing mistake or deliberate print on the media (sleeves, labels, and CDs). I can't even confirm if "Mk 2" and "Mk 11" are the same, but I'm guessing they are.

Also, this article should mention that the song used a sample of Grace Jones' "Slave to the Rhythm", most notably, the "Aah" chants featured in the Album version of her song, timed at ~6:35.

Other necessary refinements include: What date was "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain..." recorded?
