Note: The Sony JE530 is a minidisc recorder, however
a pure digital output is available when using it as a
'passthrough' device. Therefore, despite the presence
of a minidisc device in this lineage there is no MD/
ATRAC compression.

2. Fools 4:55
3. Heartbeat 5:59
4. Through A Sombre Galaxy 4:44
Total Time : [20:00]


Editing:
All samples x 150% (approx +5.1db)

Minor fades at start and/or end of tracks, as necessary.
(You can still hear the first 3 or 4 seconds of Thin Lizzy's
'The Sun Goes Down' fading in at the end of t01).

Between 0:36 and 0:42 of t01, there was a slight dropout in the
volume of the left channel. I fixed this as best I could (it
is still slightly detectable, when you know it's there).
Declicked @ 19:36 (4:19 of t04).
Declicked @ 12:42 (3:25 of t03).
