    BTW - modern CD players can play all the audio on this CD-Rom. I just tried it. Comes up with a count of 165 tracks (to my surprise) with the extracts from the Chris Karrer interview coming up first, followed by Christian Burchard (Embryo), etc... Track 12 the above 16 music selections start (although in a different order than listed here). Afterwards are selections from our own label catalogue, and then a 100 or so extracts of Kosmische Auricle type stuff (mostly Endgame). Forgot all that was on there!
