Release Notes:
The hearpen.com download is the second revision of the original 1985 release. The original mix for vinyl release in 1985 suffered from lack of time and distractions. It was remixed at Suma in 1996 with the radical approach that David Thomas had originally planned for. A less than good post-production process, hurried again, caused Thomas to re-visit the various mixes in April 2014. All mixes were examined and, in some cases, edits were made or alternate mixes chosen. The audio was re-EQed by Paul Hamann and attention given to the post-production processing. This is the way it was supposed to sound.

Production Notes:
Produced by David Thomas.
Recorded by Paul Hamann at Suma, July to September 1984.
Remixed by David Thomas and Paul Hamann at Suma, October 16-18, 1996. Digitally transferred and eq'ed by David Thomas and Paul Hamann at Suma, October 1996.
Original mixes and out-takes re-examined, some edits and re-mastered in April 2014 at Suma.
