Remark:
To avoid damaging the compactness of the whole, I did not divide the album into separate numbers, so that after downloading it you get two stripes, side A and side B. I also respected all the breaks and silences as in the original without any shortening. I tried to make the sound clean and fresh. I hope you enjoy it, LP is more than interesting and side B is magical.



If you find it, buy this album!
