I've downloaded it twice but it only comes up as one track, "The Last Profet". It is a wonderful track, is the rest available as well? Thanks.

just to clarify.
this, as well some of the other posts here, are still very much available to buy.

that's why there is only one track

@ ochoresotto, i agree
these re-issues on 180gram vinyl would be awesome.

@greg

hi, Katonah.
you have a wonderful friend. excuse me, could you share that, please? my e-mail is in profile. of course, the gratitude to your usual goodwill doesn't change even if refused.

thank you.
