about

In 1993 bands put their recorded music on Cassette Tapes. The Tape format created a time limit of 60 minutes, or 90 minutes if you were using the really advanced Tapes.

Cat's A Bear released "Tito: In Search of a Revolution" that year, an Album which eventually became part of the digital Album "The Cycling Troll Sessions". Eight tracks were released, and that, as they say, was that.

Fast-forward thirty years to a time when the primary Album form is digital. The freedom to release albums without the physical tape duplication expense allows multitudes of music to be liberated from the confines of drawers, shelves, storage units and boxes.

Boxes. I thought I was done.

Well, what are these?

As it turns out, 13 other tracks were recorded during those same sessions. The tracks only lost out due to lack of space in the Cassette format. That limit no longer exists, and these cuts are the result of that happy discovery.

Included are six trio cuts with Tony Stefanelli on bass, and seven cuts adding saxophonist Phil Papotnik, including alternate takes of Eye Of The Pyramid and Enchant Me from this release and Knick's Knack from the original Revolution Album.

The playing is loose and fun, and the drumming is great as always. Many of the arrangements are unique to these tracks, and the band's sound brings it all together in 13 tracks of original music.
