the first solo collection of very early dave stafford loops, featuring mostly longer pieces - including one 44 minute tour de force live / loop performance.

there were no liner notes on the original CD.

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.
