1. Peter Hammill, Thin Air
2. Naked Lunch, Universalove

9. Christina Carter, Seals
10. Alela Diane, To Be Still
1. Fire is Mats Gustafsson, Johan Berthling and Andreas Werliin.
2. Released as two single CDs, but it’s hard not to think of them as a double.
3. Full Blast is Peter Brötzmann, Marino Pliakas and Michael Wertmüller.
