Recorded at Temptation Studios in the last year of the last century, this ghostly EP of lost love songs has itself been long-presumed lost after a ship carrying the master tapes back from Japan vanished in mysterious circumstances, never to be seen again. Now, following an accidental meeting on The Internet, a cassette tape containing all three songs was donated by a concerned individual, and the rescued tracks are now presented here for your enjoyment.
