This particular episode is extremely special because it's by Vinny Alfano, a session guitarist, composer and mix engineer where he created an audible experience entitled, the New York Said EP.

I asked him if it was cool to publish the EP on NYS and he said, "Hell yeah!” And here we are.

Enjoy,

Amon
