REMEMBER:  For reviews, send a copy (or two) of your CD or cassette to Geoff Wilbur's Renegade Newsletter, 580 Thames Street, P.M.B. 449, Newport, RI  02840.  And if you ever get a review you don't like, please send another disc and request a different reviewer.  We're always willing to run multiple reviews of the same disc -- so people can see what several different reviewers think of it.
