Greg is best known for his excellent single Clone which for some strange reason wasn’t featured on this collection of Greg´s work.The album has some fantastic songs included on it and was a limited release. It does include Greg´s other singles Parallel Universe, Doctor Rain and Marie Celeste.

The album has some interesting minimal synth tracks among my favorites are I´ll Be Your Surprise, Problem Page and Suddenly My Heart Goes Zing.
I have also included the missing single Clone and a couple of fab tracks from his Myspace site, Burt Bacharach and Fittest Person In Heaven.
A rare gem, I love this album.

This download is split over two parts.
