Album Notes
This was the first CD we released as a band, recorded in my lounge room in Brunswick East by the legendary Jem Savage. We issued this CD with a really cheeep cover and printed about 100 copies, so in 2012 I've decided to re-mix it, re-master (mastered by the equally legendary Phil Rex) it and release it as a download only, and also add one track that didn't make the CD. (Ebony and Ivory)

There was also some tracks that were recorded in Canberra in 2002 that were on the CD that I've chucked, because they were recorded on 'DAT' tape (remember that?) and had some little pings and crackles and audio artefacts.

So here it is! the re-mixed, re-mastered original sessions, from the band we used to call 'Libido Buddha' (neé Leigh Barker Quintet, neé The New Sheiks). Marc Hannaford on piano, John Felstead on saxophones, and of course the ubiquitous Al McGrath-Kerr on drums and Eamon McNelis on trumpet (and secret flugelhorn).
