Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered 4 CD definitive history of one of the best instrumental exports from Great Britain. 60 tracks, 2 previously unreleased. Each song (but one) was composed by Simon Jeffes or in collaboration with other members. It's cafe music with a twist and a flair unlike any other band... that touches the spirit, spurs creativity and is simply pleasureable to listen to.
