M SQUARED - Pardon Me For Barging In Like This

VOD 62 - May/June 2009

5LP Vinyl Box set (plus a 10") containing a variety of rare recordings coming out of M2 during 1979-1983. It contains a mix of material seen elsewhere here + some that was found in the vaults and cellars of Sydney and the Blue Mountains. It's been beautifully remastered from original source tapes and cassettes and sounds far better than my previous archival attempts. A CD version for Australian release will be available at a later date (once these have all sold, I imagine). ACRA, Gibson, Scats all sound great and the early MotDTF stuff fills out the void around them.
