David has just completed mixing and mastering the session that Derek Bailey recorded for the album 'Blemish'. It was to be the last solo studio session Derek recorded before the onset of illness. It's a remarkably intimate series of recordings with Derek performing at the peak of his powers.
The album is titled 'To Play (the blemish sessions)' and is currently set for release in Sept. 06.
