Doveroso doppio ringraziamento alla Ogun perché rimette in circolazione, in versione completa rispetto all'originale Impetus (1987), un raro concerto del quintetto di Elton Dean di metà anni Ottanta - in Brasile, a Sao Paulo, con Harry Beckett, Paul Rutherford, Marcio Mattos e Liam Genockey - e perché porta a compimento uno degli ultimi lavori di salvataggio sonoro intrapresi dal compianto Mike King: Welcomet!

This reissues a scarce vinyl album, on CD for the very first time, that includes about 30' of extra music - making the entire concert available for the first time. This is also one of the last things that the great engineer Michael King worked on before he died. "Recorded Live by Radio Cultura de Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1986. Ogun is extremely proud to present, on CD for the first time, the complete Sao Paulo concert recording of this stellar quintet. Transferred from the unedited analogue master by the late Michael King, “Welcomet” sounds as cutting-edge now as it did back in 1987 when edits from the concert were first released on lp."
