Hello there,

great blog, Some of your stuff I still treasure in my files myself while I take pleasure in downloading the other gems. And I am not even surprised to see some of the most obscure (non-)releases emerge every now and then. Like "Independent World" Vol. 2.

Back in 1985/86 I was compiling the second, third and fourth volumes of the planned "Independent World" cassette series. In the end these have never been released due to financial and organizational difficulties, which is an inexcusable default.

Vol. 2 would have been accompanied by 19 xeroxed A4 info/artwork pages, packed in a plastic pocket:

Keep on digging.
