Past and Present Number Three really grabs me.

Lovely song; beautiful video; interesting name of the group/artist(?), Lawless 84.

And, to me, Coming to the Call may be Remington's most beautiful work.

I keep going back to "May Night". Just lovely. It has a haunting quality, other worldly. Makes me want to know the story behind it. :-)
