This collection attempts to gather together some of the best of Pablo's freelance work in one volume and will no doubt plug in a few gaps in collections by the inclusion of some of the more hard to find tracks. While every effort has been taken to find the best possible sources for these recordings it is inevitable that many of the tracks have had to be dubbed from the original singles and digitally restored.
