Um,.. don't be surprised if you hear a loud "Thum-thum-thum" from overhead and a big bag crushes the old pickup tonight.

Don't change your plans just yet, Mike. Your album did indeed go out today, I just checked the shipping log. The first few serial numbers are ours, so we shipped numbers out past serial #20 today. Some guy named Koto was in that shipment too.

thanks Doc, i'll be ready if it arrives today.

Thanks Mike,

The cover art was kind of a challenge on this one. I scanned the cover of an early (original?) issue LP. You may note that the color and contrast are rather different than the kind of washed out gray-blacks with aqua background you see on the CD artwork. I could push one of the auto level/color/etc. buttons in Photoshop and get the same result, but my cover is a closer representation to how the original cover that we borrowed looked, and I think it has a richer feel to it. The back cover of the original is pretty forgettable, but I tried to be as true as possible to the original layout while incorporating our credits.
