I believe there's been some Bob Newart played on heavy friends in previous episodes. Thanks for playing the long version of the opening track. It's amazing. Peace,

Always nice to know there are Klaus fans around! Bad night to skip out on that LP I guess. Actually considered brining that LP but just can't do it all in one show. Great suggestion...bad decision on my part.

Great show -- I've not even noticed the Wunderlich-lack.
