Their generosity did not last long Jan, no paper squirrels included in the latest release.

This release of Ommadawn, transferred directly to DSD from the original analogue UK stereo master, is massively dyrnamic and has excellent fidelity. The overall level is not very high and you may find yourself cranking it up about 8dB more than your typical disc, but clarity and fidelity are delivered here and this is currently my go to version of Ommadawn, my favorite piece of Mike's work. I have numerous other versions including a needledop of the quad (ODickie), original UK vinyl, Simply Vinyl, 2010 CD+DVD-V reissue/remix, etc., etc - this is the best of the bunch.
Previously released as UIGY-9085
