True man, it's never enough of those fine old 'zax!

...but it was the exact number of audio tracks on the album :) Take a peek if you like:

Nice selection and visual presentation.

If it wasn't a little short in terms of the number of tunes, I'd even voted higher.

Thanks for the feedback, glad to hear you!

Oswald, I really owe you a beer or two on next Arok party :)

Steppe, have a nice drive and thanks for the support! Considering Sanxion, there was a harder, more cymbal-oriented mix (#29 I guess) but it was harsh somehow through the JBLs and it was slightly harsh through headphones so I decided on a slightly smoother final mix. Many things happen in the mid and hi-range, for clearing out the dense field I decided on breaking the drums a littlebit. It's only a Duende bus compressor on drum bus with a really low threshold. It made the drums soft in a way. Mix/master, finding a balance - always a headache... :)

Hermit, man, it was an honour to work with you and C'grats for the artistically coded program! Without you, making this would not be possible.

Leon, I owe you a beer, too :) Man, that main pic is stunning! At first, I could not believe my eyes that it is a multicolor pic...

Fredrik, thanks for the feedback! Those are fine tunes, indeed! They still have echoes in my mind, after all those years :)

JazzCat and MacGyver, thanks for the help!

It's a fine album and definitely well worth spending the equivalent of two beers over at c64audio.com. Just one point of critcism: The drums on Sanxion are so strange, I expected some heavy drums with lots of cymbals! But on the whole a very good album that will accompany me in my car for the next while.

Yeah, I especially like the acoustic and sologuitar-imitation in Times of Lore...very well done, best in sidplay2w with 6581 emulation..

I've listened the full remix album, and there are really impressive and advanced live-guitar stuffs on it.. worth listening for sure :).
