Chronological Recording History (1985-1988)
The 1985 London, Ontario "The Game is afoot" 3 song demo tape has just been converted from the original studio reel to reel (dated Feb. 26, 1985). This "off the floor" demo was engineered by Rob Nation at Emac Studios in London, Ontario. Many thanks goes out to David Cain of SoundMaster Studios of Ottawa Canada for artfully rescuing the original, almost 20-year old Ampex reel to reel on November 22, 2004.
