This is a comprehensive 3 disc set covering the live and studio output of the late synth maestro/pianist/composer Jamie Fielding.

What’s Missing, New Way and Nicaragua (tracks 4, 5 & 6 from disc 2 of the compilation) feature Women and Children First, a formative band in Sandy Evans’ career. Jamie travelled with the band on an epic 7 month tour around Australia in 1985.

Covering work from 1981 to 1992, a range of solo works and collaborations are included, across multiple musical forms and genres, from jazz to industrial to synth noise and free improvisation. This vast collection also includes Fielding’s many collaborations with a who’s who of 1980s experimental and improv royalty.
