Re: Tim Mungenast's - 'The Un-Stableboy'

Thanks, David. It sounds like you "got" it, and that makes me very happy 
indeed. And I dig those early discs you sent me (the first two Undo 
releases). Proof that recording on analog cassette can yield 
great-sounding results.

Tim Mungenast has put together a very very listenable collection of calm 
calming songs.  There's something about them that reminds one of those 
60's records that people are still digging.  Maybe it's the way instruments
have space and play melodies?  Maybe it's the clear, neo-hypnotic vocals?
Maybe it's something else.  Whatever it is, it's enjoyable.  Worth checking
