 The CD cover art is adapted from Howard Menger's Authentic Music from Another Planet, that 1957 release of outer-space music that sounds suspiciously like an amateur noodling around a keyboard.

So it's only appropriate that the Introduction for this volume should be given by Menger himself.  

I hope you'll enjoy this mishmash of music!


See you on Monday.
