Dark Entries to release five-LP boxset from new age composer Suzanne Doucet

The albums were previously only available on cassette...

The ever-prolific Dark Entries label has announced another reissue. 

This time, the San Francisco-based label will be overseeing a five-LP box set reissue of music by new age composer Suzanne Doucet. 

Titled 'New Age Box Set 1982-84', the music featured on the release was previously only available across a number of cassettes. Doucet's forays into new age music began in the early 1970s, but before that she enjoyed some success in her native of Germany scoring a number of number 1s. 

Dark Entries' reissue covers a number of albums that Doucet made in collaboration with others following her move into new age music. One album is 'Transformation', which she worked on with frequent musical partner Christian Bühner under the name of New Age. 'Transmission', recorded in 1983, saw Doucet working again with Bühner before relocating to Los Angeles. The following year, she collaborated with Tajalli on 'Brilliance' and went on to make 'Reflecting Light Vol. 1' and 'Reflecting Light Vol. 2' with James Bell who she also married in 1984.

The box set will extend across five pieces of vinyl and come in a limited run of 300 copies. The release also includes liner notes and photos from Doucet. There will also be limited copies of each individual album. 

Dark Entries will release 'New Age Box Set 1982-84' on July 19th. 

Last month, label owner Josh Cheon revealed that 40 reels of unheard Patrick Cowley material had been discovered in an attic, and was being restored for potential future release.
