hey tom,

you don't by any chance have any Mauricio Kagel in that limitless collection of yours, do you (particularly, "Nah und Fern")?

Album tonnage I have, Issac, but retrieval systems aren't my strong suit. (A major flaw in the operation!) I'm sure I have the composition, but it'd take a few days to find it... I'll sniff around the vault.

Got your questions - I'll respond ASAP.
