Sleeve Notes by Terry Brown
I wanted Martin to write these sleeve notes, so when he came into my office the other day I sat him down with a piece of paper and said: “Write!” I wandered off for about an hour to complete various jobs—on my return I found Martin staring glumly at the piece of paper on which he had written …
It seemed like a good idea at the time
… that was all!
I'm convinced it still is a good idea; and so will you when you listen to this unusual instrumental offering by Martin and Dave.
