Gideon "eight reasons why" (1981,Canada,progressive hard rock)

Gideon is an obscure Canadian progressive hard rock duo.
As you know,Gideon is introduced here.
I was interested in this album,and the blogger sent me the mp3 file,and much pleased with the music.
Then,I found the album in the used record shop by chance and bought it.
It took much long time to make remixed version.Spread sound space,Volume control was done little by little at each part of each track.Again and again,finished files were thrown away to the dust box because I didn't like it totally. So the remixed version is better than the original version for just this once .

David Smalczewski.......Electric and acoustic guitars,Bass guitars,Bass pedals
Mark Smalczewski........Keyboards,Vocals,Bass pedals

(guest player)
Terry Hicks......drums

Thank you..excellent job..would have been nice to have scanned both labels which imo are the most important part of any artwork [and include them].
