Where Words Do Not Reach

Got a session scheduled at The Bratt Studio tomorrow AM to attempt to complete OHO's “Where Words Do Not Reach” (the instrumentals 1974-2015). Agenda consists of a Frisellian attempt to play the melody for Ray's "Unique" in Eb through a bank of airy/eerie Strymon effects boxes (El Capistan, Flint, Deco + a Jangle Box compressor). That Steinberger 'Demon' Synapse guitar will come in handy for this; I'll just roll back the built-in capo 1 fret and play it as if it was in "E" and enjoy the added haunting benefit of it sounding in that lower register. I can't wait to start giving these CD's away, though that eventuality is perhaps 6-8 weeks off. Here's the tentative line-up of the tunes, for our tens of fans worldwide who may be familiar with some of them (7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18 & 19 never have been released):
