Track-lists of the 5 'in-box' CDs, and a little about the write-in freebie
6th CD, available as a 'write-in' to the 1st 5,000 buyers.

Due to immense demand for us to add an on-line secure sales facility for the
RT Set, (see www.free-reed.co.uk/rt) we have now added the Set to our

this is a Feb 6th 2006 Release, and cannot be mailed to buyers  until just
