I wanted to share this magnificent "long lost" track, a huge favorite of mine, with a wider audience, so I created a cover collage featuring the album cover including Yukihiro, Bill, & Neil together, in some atmospheric imagery, and uploaded it to YouTube way back in 2013. It has received 5,200 views, 81 Likes and several thanks and praises along the way.
It only now, finally, occurred to me to share it here. ENJOY, it is SOOOO beautiful! Bill's vocal interpretation is stunning as is his guitar, as always. Gives me goosebumps and sometimes tears.
The entire album is a delight, by the way, well worth searching out. Bill also appears on the track "Bounds Of Reason Bonds Of Love"
A full-rez copy of my collage is below as well.
