Man, that looks very interesting indeed. Going to get this and give it a spin.

Fab line up. Do the sum of the parts make the whole? Lets see.

Just starting my first proper listen. Have to say I am really enjoying what I'm hearing.
Fantastic to hear Skunk Baxter playing some of the Steely Dan tunes he played such a big part in first time around.
Sound quality is very damned good too.
Grab this folks. And leave a comment too.

Just for the pernickety out there.

Track 5 is "Rikki Dont Lose THAT Number"

Track 9 could be pinned more accurately as "Creole Dance/America/Look At Us Now". I remember Emmo playing Creole Dance on the 1992 ELP world tour. Although it was a bit more polished then.
