This is a selection of unreleased recordings of the past. My feeling is that so called field recordings hold a special value in its authenticity of the moment in which music is created. Which is different from the recording studio, which holds another, also important value, but again different. And just as musicians traditionally study field recordings in order to compare these with the studio recordings of the same musician(s), so do I. It may be interesting for those familiar with my official releases to hear what concerts around the time of each release respectively sounded like. Also with the official releases that in fact were recorded live, there may be value in comparing with other similar or different concert recordings.
