SSDL1721 the autoreverse session

release date: 19990617 label: pureambient

dave's only 1999 release, featuring a short set of tracks commissioned by autoreverse magazine (ian c. stewart). the CD was sent out with a limited number of issues but has remained in the catalogue ever since as well.

here is a reproduction of the original CD liner notes:

"the autoreverse sessions" was recorded live to digital during the first week of june, 1999 exclusively for AUTOreverse issue nine. this is only one guitar.

the phonographic copyright in these performances / compositions is operated by studio seventeen productions / pureambient on behalf of the artist, with whom it resides. studio seventeen productions / pureambient accepts no reason for artists to give away such copyright interests in their work by virtue of a "common practice" which is out of tune with the times, was always questionable and is now indefensible.
