You know it was the least I could do to hook you up with George [Massenburg] while he was here...

I suspected you guys would get on like a house on fire and you most certainly did. He's been very excited to have met you too... You are one of his peers after all. I know this is the case because he's been raving to me in the car about you as we've been driving around Sydney.

You'll be pleased to know that the two people he's been most moved by while he's been here have been your good self and Richard Lush.

I hope by the time you receive this letter you will have received the tape of The Little River Band. We mastered this on half inch 30 ips Ampex which gives a superb signal of noise ratio and a cleanliness of sound which is near digital.

I must pay tribute to Dave's guitar work which I think is superb. He has given solos of consistently inspiring quality which match a marvellous level of performance from everybody concerned.
