  2. hell of a lineup! can't wait to hear this. thanks vitko!

  3. Hey Vitko! The Duet with Akkerman, "I'm not Dreaming" and this by Rolf were all new to me . . . the Duet album is particularly exciting to me as at this time in the late 70's I was a huge Akkerman fan and still am. Many thanks for these listens!!!
