I’m just listening to this long forgotten recording - great music!
Is it on cd, too?


Yes it is - or was - available on CD. I saw it in Aberdeen City Library yesterday. “Long forgotten” after 21 years ? 🙂

Sorry, I wanted to say “long forgotten by myself “. I have recently started to listen to all my old records and to transfer some to CD. I have found a couple of real gems like taht, sometimes probably recordings I did not like that much twenty years ago, but due to changed (improved) taste I love them now!
