The original master of this cd was lost on a no longer retrievable formatted cassette. The first four tracks were taken off a cassette, as it was, hence the white noise. The quality of these four tracks are not great but they have been included because they represent a historical phase of the celestial harp’s development.

With New Sounds on the Block, a second mix was found. It was included as Still on theBlock. It shows how different edits and effects can change a piece. The original cassette was a 30 minute cassette. With the addition of Still on the Block the cd now has 44 minutes and 24 seconds of music.
