Well, It's not really a "debut" album. Go for the 2018 Limiñanas "Shadow People" LP (same staff on this one)...And if you like that sound, I also encourage you to listen to other Limiñanas work!

Agree !. RDS is a blessing for greedy sellers and a pain in the ass for music lovers. See this one & the pretty good The Hangman's Blues, less then 50 in wantlist and quite fair prices. These are as good (and ltd) as Hillbillies in Hell series with i.e. ... See full review

posted a comment on Gérard Manset - Mansetlandia "The Ultimate Artefact". over 2 years ago
For years now, Manset is publishing and re-arranging same stuff, adding a few previously unheard material to ensure sellings.
And this box set is the perfect - and overpriced - demonstration.
Good for making money, not as good for pleasing fans...
