This is the happiest of all the tapes, and probably the easiest to enjoy. It was also the easiest to make. I normally spend around five to ten weeks on each tape, but this one was nailed down in two. It’s effectively a massive thank you to my friends, without whom I’d either be lost or long gone. The knowledge that people as good as them exist is more wonderful than I can convey here.
