Translations: Georgie Belev [from English to Bulgarian, presumably for tracks 1, 6 and 13 only]

Notes: The gaida (also heard uncredited on track 13) is a traditional Bulgarian instrument like the bagpipes. This version of the album includes a bonus track (track 9) and was only available by mail order from Globe Music. Tracks 1, 6 and 13 are previews of material on Legacy, Jobson's album which began life as a UK reunion project and includes contributions from Bruford and Levin. (HP, 10 Aug 01)
