Them what was here: Craig Forbes percussion drums, Peter Busboom guitar, Alejandro Miranda guitars, Fergus Leahy guitar bass, Takayuki Suzuki drums, Melanie Eden vocals, Arron Manfield sax flute, Cameron Zachreson sax, Geoff Tanner camera, Benni Seidel bass drums guitar vocal

It rained like crazy. Raining in thunderous awe full roar on a tin roof while recording the Virtually Acoustic @ 82A session (VA@82A) using vintage ribbon mics didn’t seem like a good idea. So I didn’t set them up. By the time I realized I should have, it was over. Sometimes I’m a […….] idiot!
Oh well, we got one track. You can read the intention below

Peter Busboom guitar R, Fergus Leahy guitar L, Alejandro Miranda guitar CR, Takayuki Suzuki drums, Melanie Eden vocals, Craig Collinge vocal piano, Arron Manfield conga, Cameron Zachreson sax, Geoff Tanner camera, Benni Seidel bass voice
