This is one of those sessions that pretty much ended up as the album. There were only a few glitches, a bit of feedback and some minor bits that needed repair, so after a little bit of balancing and shaping that was it, nothing more needed to be done.
After such a long break due to the pandemic and lockdowns, we were all in a most creative mood, and for July it wasn't too hot either, they music just flowed out of us as if by magic. Great when that happens, and also great when it's this good. This time round the titles have no special meaning, but were just made up on the spot.
