  1. Thanks for uploading these, it'd been years since I'd heard them. I have a feeling there's still a shoebox full of these cassettes at my parent's house – somewhere.

  2. Bought a copy of this at one of their gigs at 'The Garden of Memories' in Howick back in '83. Nearly got bottled ! Stole a couple from Darryl in Streatham in London in 85 or 86. He'd played it at the legendary Batcave I believe. Lent a copy to Andrew Moon a coupla years ago and he put it on to a disc for me.

  3. Hey no worries, bloody great track, hence our pleasure… also watch this space for 3 more uploads from Silent Decree: "March", "Fields Of Love" & "The Beloved Cry" (stay tuned)
