I love this album. There. I've spilled my guts.

Interested? Hype yourself. I'm just gonna give you the goods.

Get it here.

String it out for all it's worth, then reel it in.

Absolve yourself.

Buy more string...

Stunning! Gettin strung up has never been this good. Always wanted to hear this -- sure I coulda tracked down a release somewhere before, and now surely will. All about the string. Thanks for posting this, Tom.

Hello Eric,

I'm fairly scrupulous about cross-checking the Nets for current release versions of albums I decide to post, but I've found no new reconfiguration or reissue of this wonderful recording... The rarities stockists are bound to have a few copies lying about - I hope you have a successful search!

Best,

TS
