Matt said...

I just discovered your trove of recordings here, and might I say it's quite a collection. Lots to absorb here...

Thanks for the efforts.

Cool! I used to have these discs, but they were stolen, along with the rest of my collection. Great to hear them again. Ab is great!!!

Wonderful music; thanks so much! I've heard Baars live a couple of times with ICP, never leading his own groups. These discs never showed up where I was living while they were inprint. Thanks again.
