The contents of this collection of tunes is taken from Marc Johnson's archives. They were recorded live on a "state of the art" , two track advent cassett tape recorder using two sure SM-57 Michropones, strategically placed from optimum clarity and mix. The tapes were then "aged" approximately 30 years before being transferred to CD, Downloaded in .mp3 format and presented to you, here. In other words - 'what you hear is what you get, warts and all'. So listen to the music, which has some very good (and not so good) preformances, but, try not to be too critical of the production.
