A few weeks later, a friend who hosted a radio show – Christian Fiesel – invited me to contribute a track for an Edgar Froese tribute show that he was putting together. At first I hesitated, for I usually don’t do tribute tracks and felt that this were shoes to big to wear for me. However, he persuaded me to give it a try, and the result was the central track on this album – “Everlasting Footprints” (a title that has the initials EF!).
Another month later, I was asked to contribute to yet another memorial radio show – and for that purpose created several alternative mixes of that track. One of them is included in this album as well (but not the one that was aired). The two versions of “Everlasting Footprints” are quite different, and I guess it’s worth having them both!
At the time, I didn’t want to include these tracks on an album, because it would have felt like capitalizing on Edgar’s passing. But more than five years later, it seems appropriate to finally release this music.
