Notes

Track A1, "Silence", was originally titled "Wicca". Its opening is a sample of Claudio Campos, a Capoeira master, speaking in Portuguese. He recites an adaptation of the Wiccan precept of the Threefold Law which translates back to English as:
"Be aware to the rule of thirds. What you give will return to you. You have to learn this lesson. You only receive what you deserve."

Accidentally listened to this album on 33 1/3 RPM the first time I put it on. It's an enjoyable experience and I recommend that everyone try it.
