This was originally recorded in 1999 and I always considered it a lesser work, probably mistakenly, so it never got a full proper release. In 2009, I decided to revisit my old recordings and convert them to the music software I've been using for a while. This process involved me remixing and remastering those old tracks and removing the audio grime and editing the mistakes allowed me to present these recordings in their best possible state for the first time.

The "Start" album suddenly had a resurgence on an alternative music website logging in over 17,000 playbacks so I decided that it was only fair that I give this collection of recordings a proper audience. A edited version is available on my "Sows' Ears and Silk Purses" box set, but this is it in its entireity, cleaned up and restored for the 21st century.

Recorded between 26 May and 29 June 1999. Remixed and remastered in October 2009.


released July 1, 1999
