Yeah, I play it a bit and really quite like it. It certainly isn't a real KJ
album either musically or thematically but its interesting to hear Geordie
playing in a more delicate fashion here and there. Perhaps its KJ's
"Astounding Sounds", ie so different from before that its better qualities
are lost in its unexpectedness? Best non-KJ record of Coleman's is the one
that he did with Anne Dudley (Songs from the Eternal City?).
