Lyrics by Roye, Mo & Mick.
A NEKTAR composition.
Every CD of "Remember The Future" that was mastered prior to 2002 should
be avoided at all costs. They all contain this bad mix!
We do recommend that everyone buy the Eclectic Label release
which were re-mastered by Paschal Byrne, Mark Powell, and Roye Albrighton!
The Dream Nebula is another one of the five compliations albums (Thru The Ears, Nektar s/t, Best Of, The Dream Nebula, and the
Highlights albums) of various songs by Nektar.
Disc 2 of this release,has the horrible first master of "Remember The Future."
Supposedly, the engineers didn't realize the master tape they used was from
a quadraphonic mix. That blunder can be heard on this release. The result
is just atrocious. Because just the 2 front channels were used, Roye's guitar
is barely audible, Taff's Organ is over-powering. Making this easily the worst
CD mastering job I have ever heard, a total train wreck!
