Originally created as pre-concert mood setters, popularity and sound board thievery led to EZ Listening Muzak being sold back in the early 80’s as two fan club only cassettes.

But wait…also included alongside these cherished instrumentals of yesteryear is a Brand New EZ version of ‘Human Rocket’ – recorded exclusively for this release!
