Even better than #4. A superb collection (1 hr 13 min).

FYI nearly all tracks are medium to fast tempo, and even the odd
slower record has an air of excitement/tension about it.

Group leader, record label id, and year, have been gleaned from my mp3
file names, apologies for any errors.

There's a reason that stuff is rare.

A truism. Lack of exposure / promotion would be a significant reason -
unrelated to their pass mark+ for listening pleasure.
