This track was one of Stormy's Monday selections. It is currently available as part of his next bumper collection. His Fourth year of treasures from the murky, cavernous DGM archives, torch in hand, fedora upon his head is already available for download.
Michael Giles is on record as saying he was never happy with the drum sound achieved at Wessex Studios on the first album. Yet for a generation of listeners, this strange almost papery sound was one of the defining features of that debut. As the title states, what we have hear is a drum check as Michael plays around the kit enabling engineer Robin Thompson to get the levels set. I don't know about you but 41 years on it sounds pretty darned good to these ears.

Regardless of what he thinks (most musicians are never happy with thier sound, anyway), Giles had the best sounding snare drum ever recorded, hands down. What a great find! Thanks, Stormy...
