I still have individual copies of the actual album for sale. Each copy of the album is in an hand stamped sleeve, made with magical ink and a rubber stamp designed by Kimberly Battista, based on a random piece of art she had made and was hanging on her wall. It looked so good we had to make it into a rubber stamp.

I recorded this album from about 2002 to 2004, recording on my 4-track cassette and later 8 track digital.
I think 1 or 2 tracks were recorded during the 2003 Blizzard, in between epic sessions of watching every last commentary of "Fellowship of the Rings" in between hot toddies and sambuca shots.
Actually the whole thing is interesting as a document of where I was 10 years ago, influences that I can now play with knowledge but only had hinted at then.
Several of these tunes got recorded later as band versions with my bands Satabdi Express and Mahadev. (Baba, Dirt Man, Barunji's Waltz
The last 2 tunes are interesting because they were done right after my first trip to India in 2004 on my old beat up harmony guitar that I had gotten from Darren Sheppard and jury rigged to play Indian music on. At this point my playing has completely transformed, particularly for Indian music, so this is sort of a document at my first attempts to do it.
Of course you will figure out the untitled track, it was originally a hidden track on the CD.
