Original Sleeve Note

This is Ant's original sleeve note for the album, which was only included on the sleeve of the UK LP release:

Whilst mixing "Sides" I was introduced to an Argentinean guitarist, Enrique Berro Garcia, who was a fan of mine.  At the session end he took up a guitar and played "Collections" from "The Geese and The Ghost" brilliantly.  I felt I should be his fan!  A collaboration seemed inevitable, this album is the result.  The last of the Send Barns albums, I want to thank all there who made it possible.

I dedicate this album to Enrique and Sylvie and all their generous and charming Argentinean friends and all the innocent on both sides who died in the international conflict.
