This album is a firm favourite of Daza's from the time he was a daytime DJ at RDU, the student radio station at the University of Canterbury. After many years of looking he found a second hand copy and was cheered to find it was as good as he remembered. The album doesn't appear to ever have been re-released, which is a shame. We have only found a couple of mentions of it on the web:
