Ristampe, rarità e preziosi materiali d'archivio del compianto Gary Windo tornano attuali in tre edizioni curate da Gonzo Multimedia: Dogface (1982), Deep Water (1988), e l'inedito Steam Radio Tapes, con registrazioni effettuate tra il 1976 e il 1978 mai pubblicate all'epoca e recentemente restaurate da Mike King.

Del sassofonista ha detto Robert Wyatt: "Although he'd had a tough life even before I met him, Gary's music had the (almost!) innocent joy of a child, still full of wonder and excitement. He was nothing like most English jazz musicians: a rather guarded, suspicious lot in those days. He seemed oblivious to careerist ambition. And he had SOUL. Naturally absorbing both R&b honking tenor sax swagger with the sensitive tonal nuances and courage of Archie Shepp... a complete musician."

Nella sezione web radio dell'etichetta c'è anche una conversazione telefonica con Pam Windo:
