Side A: "PERPETUAL PROGRESSION"
One sided 12" featuring Hopewell's re-mix of Anthema, in which the band and recording engineer find a used reel of tape to record the song onto. After Anthema had been completed, an unused track was lifted and the gospel singer you hear on this version was found. Amazingly, the Hopewell tracks and the gospel singer's track fit together almost perfectly without any such intention or manipulation of the songs. Because of the nature of such a phenomenon, this record is dedicated to Carl Jung. Hopewell's longtime mates, Planetarium contribute a blurry-eyed cover of The Church's "Lullaby," drifting and pulling you out to sea.
