    Though we appreciate your enthusiasm in sharing this music, ESP Disk’ request that you remove the link for free download.

    This kind of file sharing in the context of a small label is largely detrimental and will eventually put us out of business.

    East Village Other is a current title in the ESP DISK’ catalog and can be found and purchased legally here: or on Itunes. Excerpts from is will be reissued in on of our Fall 2011 releases.
