A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Immaculata – Ion [#614]

ImmaculadaNot one of those CDs that you might find in an incense smelling floaty vagina new age shop in Avebury or Glastonbury but not far off.

Immaculata is the second album of Duncan Patterson’s music project Ion and, if the official Ion website press blurb is to be believed, a result of visiting Greece and Ireland to study musical style.

There are some good sounds on this album and I’m not entirely certain how it ended up in my collection, but I suspect I’ve probably got it from either a royalty-free site like Jamendo while looking for something to use in a video I was making or it was one of the last things I downloaded from Usenet.
