Recorded in Stockholm, November 27 1991.

"This record was cut with a drypoint needle and a record player. I was shouting out loud, again and again the words: I'm talking about if I only could talk! The needle, resting on the wax in my gentle hand, has hopefully reistered something of the vibrations of my voice."

WARNING! This record might damage your record player. Play it at your own risk.
