Garents DroSongs I didn't notice these "Variants" albums until Richard had already made four of them available. I bought all four immediately, and then thought "You know, I probably should have listened to at least one of them before buying the whole set.".

But I'm happy to find out that these first four are excellent, and I look forward to any new ones.

sumbuk Variants (all of them) are best described as electronirock with occasional ambient styling (at least so I believe). Some tracks have trumpet and sax, some have manipulated pre-recorded vocals. All are interesting. This is applicable to all 3 Variant EP's released so far, and likely the upcoming 4th, as well.

Steve Mahoney The Variants releases 1 to 5 is a brilliant concept. Variants.1 is superb. Some beautiful tracks on this. Ambient, spacial sounds. Buy this. Or buy the whole set. So far my favourite collection of cd releases this year.

dewhura So pleased we saw you perform at the Bridgewater Hall last night, been a fan since 1982, a privilege to hear you play Ghosts. Bought Variants 1&2 today and it is excellent. Thank-you.

“The first in a series of releases over the coming months. It presents a chance to put together disparate pieces of music from past and current works that wouldn't fit easily with new album plans or concepts but which I feel deserved a release.” Richard Barbieri October 2017.

The intention is to make a collectors box available later in the series of Variants releases. There will be an option to have the box autographed when it is available for order.

Please note that due to the handling and shipping arrangements it is not possible for Richard to sign items or add dedications. If an item is available signed it is noted as such in the description.
