    Essential for Windy & Carl fans. The track list is an almost chronological history of the group made up of hard to find releases that are all well documented in the liner notes. I purchased mine directly from the group's Michigan record store, Stormy Records. Carl Hultgren even signed the liner notes which was a nice surprise. Highly recommended.
