    EXCELLENT ,ASTONISHING

    You know I bought this album many years ago for one song,the only one that ever made it on the airways in the USA WHY ME? .Some months later I finally listened to the rest of it and could not believe what I was missing.Then I found out about the 2nd album a double CD called PINK WORLD.Also this was incredible.So to this day not many people know who this group is or how good the music is.WELL THATS TOO BAD FOR THEM.What's even more incredible that of these two excellent albums that only one song made it on air.You know I wonder if anybody knows that on the tape and Cd there are two songs not included on the original vinyl copy? Well now we all do.
