This is the second instalment on which Mr Pollard has assembled loose tracks which appeared in previous years on various samplers (such as the Awakenings samplers) along a few short intros for radio shows and the tasty track “A Different Sky” delivered for the Michael Garrison tribute cd.
In addition, the disc contains one unreleased track (the 8-minute “Improvisation for mellotron and guitar”), which is a bit bland and too light to make a positive impression. And there’s the original longer version of the moody “Mellowtronthoughts” which appeared on “Analogy Volume 2”.
The strong pieces on this release are the 20-minute “E-Live Rehearsal” and “The Redwood Trail” found at the tail.
