_Oathbound_ (tape only)


If you have this tape, why not mail me your comments (see below), and let people know what YOU think about it?

Jerry Cullingford( Overall, this is one of my favourite tapes - I especially like the Shin'a'in songs, particularly Song of the Seasons and Winds four Quarters (I like the touch with the bells). Lizard Dreams is a nice fun song, and Gift of Amber is an excellent lyrical finish to the first side - and a strong contrast to Winds Four Quarters which leads off the second side. Snow Beast is one those catchy songs that you'll find yourself humming for months.

Cover Art

This is based on the book cover by Jody Lee. If anything, it works better on the tape, because you can see all of it at the same time, instead of half on the back of the book.
