Additional Information:
MARS Release 72 - June 12, 2013

Stereo mash-up of the companion albums Wonder & Ibex by MARS from 2004. Both albums are mixed differently from their original release (not just regarding stereo) so it offers a new listening experience beyond just the combination factor.

This was created based on the idea of MARS reviewer/remixer Ash (DJ Ashole).

To save time I only looked at me then I grew my mind & was set free. The packers & gardeners could not let me go ungroomed. I wanted them out of my ear so they lost root. Now I am free to live while resting complete. A whole new language is opened up to me. You won't make me into a goat again. I am a warrior who doesn't need to win.  ~Wonbex Ider

Uniquely mixed & faded previews of all the songs from When Blue Blew. People said these were so well mixed that they thought these previews were actual diverse songs.
Full preview differs from listening to the 3 side previews in that it blends each side's ending & beginning tracks together.
The portion of Time Traveller on the Out Side Preview is an earlier mix not used on the final album.

Additional Information:
A.M. Rang a Song is composed using all the words that can be created by the note letters ABCDEFG. The title is an anagram of "Anagram Song." It is also mixed differently from the single version.

The album title doesn't picture blue blowing in the wind but blue blowing out like saying the neighborhood's transformer blew.

Previews of all the tracks were released September 9, 2013. The previews used fading cross fading to blend the tracks together to convincibly be a single song.

I Blew Blue -5/13/13
Through the barren I found what I could be. Beautiful lights shining on & from me. I heard blue explode & drift away. But still they were searching as if it persisted to the day.

Making it impossible is the easiest thing. Fear will depress you & grate on your brain. They couldn't get started. They aren't enjoying the good they deserve. For them it is sadder than sunset in a wilderness world.

The cuffs stay on for all of their lives. You have to erase your heaven's eyes. I wish you were all riding with me in this amazing place but your self-imposed night is always ready to lay waste. Some day you will know what it was really about. When the credits are rolling just don't walk out.
