Bandcamp notes:
Recorded in Grimburgia during Spring 2005.

2005. It seems hard to believe that this highly emotional album is almost a decade old upon this day of its digital resurrection.  Ostensibly an album of songs, picking up the thread from “Red Letters” which was another decade before. This upload for Bandcamp showcases the ultimate version – a massive 3 x LP set from Beta-Lactam Ring Records. It’s tough to score these days, but all the parts are in place right here on this page. Sound enhancement is subtle as Ray’s original master sounded so good- it merely takes advantage of the high quality digital tools which are now available. -EKS
