Wonderful! Thank you for making me really listen to this. This is the best recording (in terms of sound balance) I have heard of Derek Bailey's electric-guitar-with-two-speakers thingy and I love the combination of Aebie's cello and Carter's bass.

Re the missing 5th track. These flacs are dated 10 Dec '07, I have MP3s (not from Inc Sol) dated 11 Dec '07 that also lack 'Existence'. Is it possible that it was never actually uploaded to 'Dime-a-Dozen'?

I reposted Boromir's original posting a little while back and it only had four tracks. Not aware of any fifth.

Fascinating. The umble opinion of someone who only likes some of Steve's work. This one stands out. Every minute worthwhile and unique. Thank you ever so much for posting it.
