  3. I'm very happy to meet, you, I've got my copy of the record in Belgium in late '90s, and immediately I've loved it.
    If you have other recordings of the same level please let us know.
    Thanx again for your music

  4. whoaaa! this sounds so good!

    thanks a lot!

    and yes I "wish it was longer"!

  5. Hey to Gary and Joan...I am yet a third member, Chris Herman, on this record. This was recorded in an odd studio in Pekin Illinois...more or less in the middle of a cornfield. I don't remember why we only put 3 tracks on it (other than the cost of recording)...since we had an abundance of material. Chris Wren just sent this to me. Sadly, the playback is disabled on my computer...I'd love to hear it again.
    Since recording is so cheap these days, we should do another!

  6. That would be great idea. I would also hear you guys, though I'm on the other side of the World. But congratulation, for all of you, also to PrognotFrog. Regards, Gyula, from Hungary
