I do not own a copy of this CD and can find very little info on the internet about it. I do know it is still available for purchase at several sites for approx. $28.00 US. If anyone has this CD and wants to send me the running times of the discs, wants to send me a review for this CD or send me a CD-R to review for the site, please email me.

I don't remember who originally sent me the scan of the cover and back. I apologize for taking so long to get it up on the site.
