Top quality stuff from Elton & Co, far too good to be loitering on a dusty shelf.

Huge thanks to youse guys for putting these tapes out there.

Thank you. I am excited to hear these two recordings. Somehow I did not realize how great he was throughout the years. Recently, hearing the Ninesense re-issues and a few of his out-of print recordings has made it clear that was extremely consistent.

Cheers for this!

Note that tracks 1-3 & 6 would later appear on "Two's and Three's" (sic), a CD on the Voiceprint label.
