  1. John, I opened up Disc B on May 5 last week. Because I liked the band so much at the time, my curiosity is a big factor in my opinion. I would have loved to have all this music then. But today, I find the film soundtrack more interesting than pleasant to listen to. I can recommend this to the group's fans, but I don't think people here who are unfamiliar with the band would find this box particularly appealling. I would strongly recommend that they get copies of the band's two released albums instead.

  5. Mark Lewis - Naked Animals

    This is my kind of album. The group sounds like a performance with the tape rolling. All four of the quartet are competent. The music is low key, and can be enjoyed at a low volume.
