In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country is an EP by Scottish electronic music duo Boards of Canada. It was released by Warp on 27 November 2000, in the period between the Scottish duo's albums Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi. Like those albums, it was well received by critics. It peaked at number 15 on the UK Independent Albums Chart. Originally pressed on blue vinyl, the vinyl version of the EP was reissued on black vinyl in 2013.

Produced by Michael Sandison & Marcus Eoin. Album In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country. In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country Lyrics. Come out and live with a religious community In a beautiful place out in the country Come out and live with a religious community In a beautiful place out in the country Come out and live with a religious community In a beautiful place out in the country. Come out and live with a religious community In a beautiful place out in the country Come out and live with a religious community In a beautiful place out in the country

What we have here are more insights into the preoccupations of the Boards of Canada compound. Notoriously journalist-shy (they're rumored to run screaming into haggis-infested forests at the sound of an incoming fax), Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin leave it to their records to inform us of their politics, their preferred abandonments, and the ill winds that blow through the purple-heathered glen

Recorded at the Hexagon Sun Studio.

Supposedly, she was critical of Koresh being a prophet. Consequently, she described Koresh's ranch as "a beautiful place out in the country" and her picture appears on the IBPOIC backsleeve. This is taken from a web site and I always assumed they were correct. If you want to know about more oddities in BoC songs, take a look: speakeasy.

For the overall album itself, it's a neat little charmer of an EP, running only about 24 minutes, allowing Boards of Canada more time for the their four tracks to develop over the course of several minutes each. Three out of four times, this results in the best possible outcome, but unfortunately, the EP falls flat on the closer "Zoetrope", which refuses to go anywhere. Despite that it could have been improved upon, In a Beautiful Place out in the Country is still an incredibly satisfying listen, and worth its brief investment of time.

  • Shak
Amo Bishop Roden at 33rpm really is something else entirely. It`s quite astounding.
  • Nuadazius
I still kick myself for selling my first press copy. Possibly the prettiest vinyl out there.
  • Dishadel
Quite an unusual release for BOC, especially as in-between MHTRTC and Geogaddi. It relies much more on melodies and spheric synths. Still, 70ies nostalgia rules almost every track. Kid For Today is the track that sounds most BOC-like, ABDOITC with its vocoder voices reminds of Air. The real stand-out highlight, and - at least for me - one of the most emotional moving tracks I have ever heard is Amo Bishop Roden. This gives me the chills everytime I hear it and I was lucky enough to experience this in a club once - unforgettable! In my eternal Top 3.
  • Dominator
amazing. which club did you hear it at? what dj & time etc. magic moment
  • Delalbine
Try listening to it at 33 RPM instead of 45 RPM... ;)
  • Zicelik
this ep is so Amazing ...Amo Bishop Roden have Touch my soul my heart my mind ....i can cry and smile on this Track ...does anybody know something about the two different blue vinyl pressings. I remember that i bought the sky blue vinyl when it came out. The more solid blue seams to be not so common.
  • Pooker
Really looking forward to the repress of this on black vinyl in a few months.The original sounds good, but the new repress has got to be amazing.As others have said, save your cash. The back catalogue is getting repressed, so buy the entire collection for approximately the same cost as an original Geogaddi.They are all being cut from the original masters, directly from Bleep.You know it makes sense.
  • Dilkree
Does anyone know the value of the white label? There's no sales history to view. Ta
  • Taun
one sold for 120GBP about a week ago
  • Netlandinhabitant
It's priceless you big donkl!
  • Fountain_tenderness
I have two copies of this sky blue release, as the first one I got has a skip in one of the tracks due to a dent, and the thickness of the vinyl is noticeably different between the two. I haven't been able to find anything out about this on the internet, just an old eBay listing which refers to the "thick pressing". Anyone know anything about this that could add it to this listing?
  • Faezahn
Found my copy in a used CD/record shop and seriously paid $1 for it, NM condition. These prices are stupid, there is no limitation, there are thousands upon thousands of these out there.
  • Viashal
It's so rare 2000+ have a copy of it... With 4 for sale. Rarity to me is 0 for sale. Rarity for me is true digging, not internet copping. If something is truly scarce, it is worth something inflated. I paid over $200 for The Grimm Reaper, I aint gonna find that shit during digs on the west coast.
  • Hinewen
That guy was a spawny mofo and dare I say it a little conceited about his lucky find., and no there ain't "thousands upon thousands", this is the same kind of person that derides DMZ collectors for paying lots of money for something rare and very desirable they themselves really want but they've spent all their cash on shite shirts, buying disinterested girls expensive drinks and, hey, don't forget the rank aftershave. Art dealers are much bigger crooks in my eyes, what's the point in charging half what something is worth only for some twazock to chuck it back on here at the dragon's den rate?? This Ep is worth 30 quid at least of anybody's money, I've had it since birth in my record boudoir and it ain't shifting no place soon. 30 quid! That's half a G of coke man. Not that I do that shit, it's all been blown on vinyl baby. Feel my wax bitches. I reckon Uncle vinyl's floppy mojo only really picked up the last few years so this old pastoral mongfest is actually as rare as it seems.
  • Dakora
Thousands out there? For sure, but nobody sells them....that why the price are so were lucky..:)
  • Swiang
really? damn i wont buy until i see a drop thanks for the info
10 years has put some distance between original impressions and current opinion; and all I can really say is: listening to it at 33rpm is little different than 45 rpm. I guess that isn't saying much, but it also damns this record with faint praise, as it sounds like little more than outtakes of _Music Has a Right to Children_ ... having the overwhelmingly melancholy tint, the disheveled vocal samplings, the heavy "organ" work ... all very good but predictable, and mostly lending itself to a reflective feeling of wistfulness. Perhaps that is what most listeners wanted at the time.
  • Velan
I bought four brand new copies of this before getting one that did not have overwhelming surface noise on it. (This was back in 2000. They cost me $6 each, and I returned the first three copies for refunds.) So beware! There is a large batch of bad pressings out there. Make sure to listen to it first before buying. If buying online, ask the seller to listen to it. Make sure it's not one of the bad pressings before dropping $30+ on a used copy. I would not recommend buying a new /sealed copy. That's a gamble.That being said...I bought four copies because I was determined to find one decent pressing. I knew it was a masterpiece as soon as it was released. Easily one of my top favorite three BOC records.

Since I am not a Boards Of Canada conoisseur, let alone a long term follower of their opus, let me come out in the open and say it: Amo Bishop Roden is the track you have been looking for if dream like states of mind is the mood you prefer to be in. Sparse percussion, and an all encompassing, all inclusive melody and its sheer mesmerizing presence, chiefly restricted to recurring regularly and frequently in a prolonged and closely spaced out series of simple musical notes, which despite their compositional naivete, act like a sopofiric agent that induces sleep. When I talk about dreamy, lackadaisical sounds which inspire me to just let go and get carried away, this is the track I have in mind, along with Planetary Assault Systems' The Parting, Alter Ego's Undersea Girl, Aphex Twin's Xtal and Carl Craig's Home Entertainment. Pure and undiluted melody with no other purpose but blazing a forcible stream of gorgeous acoustic waves through your heart. Kid For Today comes in second. A proper IDM tune, if there ever was one, though I usually avoid anything intentionally labelled by these newly arrived geeks as "thinking music". Slow, broken drum beats covered with a winter blanket subtle melody, which never jumps out and kills the laid back atmosphere. No element in this tune is more emphasized than the next one, everything is layered and balanced on the same level throughout, meaning it's winner I like playing on my portable music player while outside having a walk through a forest or something. Soothing, relaxing and mollifying music which'll melt your ears down to their core elements. The B side isn't really my thing, and I espcially feel like the title track, which otherwise could have been a phenomenal instrumental piece similar to A1, has been ruined by vocoded vocals chanting in a pretty irritating manner "In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country"... Definitely not something I'd want to remember electronic music for. And those children's laughter samples in the background were already tiresome back in Y2K, while listening to them today is a competent patience exam. Overall, even to a more casual listener, and to someone who isn't a B.O.C.-til-I-die fanboy, this a chance worthy release. The A side deserves multiple listens, and Amo Bishop Roden is one of the most touching, upright pieces of electronic music I have ever come across.
  • Elizabeth
were you listening to the same In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country I am? that track is mindblowing
  • Iell
I've been a fan of BoC for a while, but I haven't got around listening to this until last night. After one listen I can easily say that this is the best Boards of Canada release ever. I was compelled by every song, except from Zoetrope perhaps, but I think it'll grow on me. You get hooked by this EP, from the first sounds of 'Kid for Today' until the last sounds of 'Zoetrope'. And of course, that feeling of nostalgia that lurks in almost every song by BoC is there. When I first listened to 'Kid for Today' I could almost feel like I was a kid again, playing around my grandparents' house. And then there's also that feeling that you can't really put your finger on, some sort of scaryness... But it only makes the music more diverse and beautiful. All in all, I think this is the brothers at their best, even though it's just a four track EP. Buy it and you'll understand why.

Warp Records has many artists in its 15 year catalog that have defined modern electronic music. Boards Of Canada is one of those acts. There are only a small amount of groups that have cult followings and B.O.C. is amongst the most popular. However when asking which track or song is their best, one will find that most B.O.C. fans do not really like one track in specific. In fact, you will get a whole lot of favorites. There is one which over a period of several years has steadily grown to be quite popular and that is Amo Bishop Roden. The name is one from Koresh's list of followers which some may remember as the cult leader who met his demise on his Texas ranch after shooting two federal agents in a wild west styled gun battle. I do feel as if the track title fits the composition quite well. An almost ambient wash of sound textures paint a picture both beautiful and yet dark. Like walking alone during a blizzard. As post 2000 works go, this is one of electronic's finest moments.
  • Grotilar
this is in my opinion one of the greatest EPs ever released. each song is incredible, i can't get enough of this release. plus, each song on here is exclusive to the release, for the most part, unlike other BOC EPs where there are a lot of repeat tracks like turquoise hexagon sun and smokes quantity. this EP is definitely worth your money, highly recommended

Amo Bishop Roden is a Branch Davidian member (remember the sect run by David Koresh from Camp David, Waco Texas?). She is the one saying "Come out to live in a religious community in a beautiful place in the country" on the track "In a beautiful place in the country". It's taken from an interview with her on David Koresh's ranch, and this is supposedly the beautiful place in the country. Amo Bishop Roden is also the person mentioned in the track 1969 on Geogaddi. "Although not a follower of hseroK divaD, she's a devoted branch davidian" (David Koresh is played reversed). It's from the same interview, but this time it's the interviewer who's saying this. There's also a picture of her on the back sleeve of "In a beautiful place in the country".
