This is the final chapter of the Jungle Shadows series.  Whatever shall follow will do so under a new name and with a different (but likely rather similar) purpose.

Looking forward to this, although of course in the southeast corner of the antipodes we are feeling far from summer - this is the time of the year we remember it wasn't that long ago, geologically speaking, when were nestled within the Antarctic circle. But from my experience, Jungle Shadows are mixes for all seasons.

I'm very pleased to see a cut from Sangster's Peaceful on this comp! There's a slight egotistical buzz, I'll admit, but mainly I'm just glad to see this obscure piece of exotic Australiana worming its way into the global exotica canon.
