This is a heavy handed recreation of Brian EnoÕs 1974 masterpiece. 
Oddly enough, Eno was one of the first people to hear it, and 
commented "I am deeply moved by your versions of my songs". 
"I like it very, very much!"
We were just making this cd for ourselves for the fun of it. We're 
big fans. It's amazing how it's all worked out, and now you can 
hear it too!
These versions lack some of the finesse and subtleties of the original, 
but retain the arrangements, and add a joyously aggressive rock edge.
It's as if we remade the whole album with me playing everything and 
Caroleen singing. Yay!
It sure was a lot of fun to make. I hope you enjoy it too.
Please listen to Brian Eno's music.
Thanks to Mr. Eno for creating such a great collection of songs that 
have endured the test of time, still great today.
