    damn, how good are the title track and The Jig is Up? I put it out there that these two are not really considered to be members of the go-to-classic-MP-songs club, but shouldn't they be?

    Bonny Lee was on the BH/BC Bonus Disc...pretty much their first take on stoner rock, or at least their own specific kind of it. They also played it live around that time.

    I really enjoy Mockingbird, which I heard first at the 2014 Turin show. I really like how light it is compisition-wise yet heavy regarding the sound. Has a Timothy's Monster Disc 1-feel for me.

    In general, I really appreciate that they use the situation to make such stuff available.

    I am so happy about MP on Bandcamp! Yes, I love vinyl, but this is the right platform for me for a variety of reasons (limited budget, shipping to USA, and I only listen to digital these days for logistical reasons). I was actually composing an email to the band yesterday to ask what is the best download method from their perspective, which would put the most money in their pocket, and then this emerges. Perfect! I hope they put their whole catalog up

    @bionaut - like you, I'm a Bandcamp fan. The only vinyl records I own (by any band) are MP's En Konsert, RW3, RW5 and Terje Brekkstad. And I don't plan on buying a record player and getting back into collecting vinyl. I understand and respect all the reasons why people prefer vinyl, but at this stage, I'm not going back to buying it unless there is a specific album put out that I can't get any other way, and as long as it prefereably includes a CD or a free download with it.

    So I'm very happy about this Light Fantastic release on Bandcamp and hope the band decides to put Child of the Future, The Motorpnakotic Fragments and HBM vol. 2 on there too although I also understand and respect all the arguments by fans and the band for why they might prefer not to. PS: I have managed to acquire all the albums mentioned by unofficial means - but what I would like is an opportunity to get them through official means and in the process give the band money for them. I did this as soon as I became aware that Light Fantastic was up on Bandcamp.

    Totally with you. I have too much vinyl and dread the day I‘d have to move. But The Light Fantastic’s sleeve artwork is hilarious and genius and if there‘s one to have non-digitally then it‘s this one.
