An incredible post. Just when you think there is no more Lyons in the offing, out comes this gem. Thanks to you and the rest of the crew for keeping the quality high and frequent.

Thank you. As a bassoonist, I am always interested to hear Karen Borca.

No surprise, the rapid share files have expired. Any possibility of a reup? Jimmy paired w/Karen Borca some of his hottest work.
