    Good easy listening music for day after Thanksgiving excesses, or any time

    Don't forget the dark sunglasses ;)

    They had xmas cookies and music going. Not your usual Christmas music fare, so that worked.

    I’ve looked for a copy for many years. If this is an RSD release the shop I went didn’t get it or were sold out.

    Yes, RSD. Should I try to find you one? The record shop only had one out but...

    Seems I have this first press version;
    ART OF WALKING - MISPRESS
    The entire initial run of both the English pressing (ROUGH 14, 5-6000 copies) and the US pressing (ROUGH-US-4, 1800 copies) were manufactured from the wrong master metalworks.
    There is a difference in the over-all mastering of the LP's frequencies that the listener may or may not notice. However, there are significant differences between the mixes of "Arabia" & "Tribute To Miles". The first correct US pressing features an "Arabia" with lead vocals. This incorrect pressing features a longer but instrumental version of the song. The correct version of "Tribute To Miles" is shorter & has a warmer mix.
    The correct pressing can be identified by the word "Masterdisk" etched into the runouts. This incorrect pressing can be identified by the words "Porky Prime Cut".
    .
    There are no differences in the albums artwork, labels or registration numbers.

    Recorded and mixed at Suma, Painesville OH.
