Misha Langley As always, it is difficult to have to pick a "favorite track"... but since I'm supposed to try... this one (I Dream of Jeannie) does stand out. But each time another track starts, I think that IT is the best one... What higher praise can there be? Favorite track: I Dream of Jeannie.

RTW This is the Dots at their trippiest, period. This collection is the way to take a casual fan up to the next level... try it after CVA, Maria, and 9 Lives. The songs alternate between cosmic and earthy, but they all share a swirly unpredictability and they all ooze together. This includes 5 tracks from a limited bonus disc that originally came with Maria. Favorite track: Andromeda Suite.

1995.A dark room and a shelf full of bulky 8-track tapes. The boxes would sometimes proudly boast the title of an album like say "Crushed Velvet Apocalypse" in bold felt tip pen, but look closer and there would be a weedy biro
line through it and the word "session" replacing it.
Play the thing and it would be a big mix of the individual tracks for the proclaimed album ,a weird and wonderful jam and some events that were better left unheard.
Such were the building blocks of Cp 8 and 9.
Add to that the odd tracks from compilations, the songs from that elusive 3" cd tat came with initial copies of "Maria Dimension" , cassettes which left blew oxide flakes to the four winds and it can be seen that a serious journey could be taken here.
Lost bits of Shadow weaver, remnants of Maria sessions , scraps from 9 Lives are all here.
Damn it, thee's also "A Triple Moon salute" , which (along with "Damien") may be EK's personal LPD favourite.
Lastly there's the cover…..weird weird fishes EVERYWHERE -one of Elke's finest creations...
Take this brother, may it serve you well…..
