Wow!
Great LP.
Amazing sound quality and package production values.
The music is strange, profound and, at times, moving. Beautiful project, well realised. Jim Carter and Jaycee Hill are my favourites - tremulous, bleak, popcorn-ish ballads and proto-rockabilly penal boppers.
My LP is 'prison grey'.
Get it!
