Cat# on rear sleeve is wrongly numbered 1.
Track B2 is titled "Craters" on rear sleeve, "Craters Pt.III" on inner.

From liner notes:
"The Tower Of Ping Pong is a chance to verify the idea of casual guitar, a practice which Nicotina has been involved in for quite a long time, combining written music and improvisation inside a loose concept of song. Casual guitar is a process that courts the "areas of ignorance of the player's conscience", a zig zag course between musical sediments which are nonetheless employed and stepped through."

The Tower Of Ping Pong is dedicated with respect and admiration to John Fogerty.
