It is a compilation of the extremely rare and outstanding Giraffe CDs The Power of Suggestion and The View From Here released by Kevin Gilbert's estate. A portion of the proceeds for the CD go to the Kevin Gilbert Memorial Fund. This is Kevin's work when he was in his very early twenties (in the late '80s). It has a similar sort of feel and sound to his Toy Matinee work. To me it is kind of a mix of Security / So period Peter Gabriel and the Toy Matinee CD. My favorite pieces are "This Warm Night", "The World Just Gets Smaller", "The Way Back Home", "Holding On With Both Hands" and "Airdance". (firstname.lastname@example.org)
