Album Description & Collectors information: 

The Cult's 1984 album "Dreamtime" is a landmark release in the history of British rock music. Originally released as a 12" 2LP vinyl album in the UK, "Dreamtime" marked the band's debut with the major label Beggars Banquet and represented a significant evolution in their sound from their earlier punk and gothic rock influences.

The album's title is derived from the concept of "Dreamtime" in Aboriginal Australian culture, which refers to the creation myth and spiritual beliefs of the indigenous peoples of Australia. The album's themes explore the relationship between human beings and the natural world, and the tension between modern society and ancient cultures.

"Dreamtime" features some of The Cult's most memorable and enduring songs, including "Spiritwalker", "Horse Nation", and "Dreamtime". These tracks showcase the band's distinctive sound, which blends hard rock with elements of psychedelia, post-punk, and blues. The album's production, by John Brand and Chris Kimsey, is raw and powerful, capturing the energy and intensity of The Cult's live performances.

"Dreamtime" received critical acclaim upon its release, with reviewers praising the band's songwriting and musicianship, as well as their ability to fuse disparate influences into a cohesive and compelling whole. The album also marked the beginning of The Cult's commercial success, with several tracks becoming radio hits and the band touring extensively in support of the album.
