Notes:  Yes, that is John Wetton of King Crimson and Asia fame.  They just
spelled his name wrong on the album sleeve.
 A great deal of this album sounds improvised... and it's all instrumental. A
mix of high and low points, but Banks is such an underappreciated gem
that it's worth sifting through the chaff. Where was this guy for twenty
years, anyways?
