| 'Freely' Stream Listen to
Photographed By Lightning's (pre-Zone) Music
October 2005 - Chris and Andrew first met in 1982 as members of the
Swansea based, multimedia group, 'Photographed By Lightning'. During August
2005 Andrew digitally mastered PBL's album
Wings Nor Stones' (circa 1984-85) and PBL
at Townhill Tech (Part 1)' (23rd June 1987). Neither recording has
previously been made available. You can now listen to these newly mastered
recordings of PBL. Listen to PBL's music. The sound quality of PBL's streamed music is good
(stereo, 22.05kHz, 64kbps) though clearly not quite comparable to a CD.
Neither of these recordings is currently available in any other format, only
for stream listening direct from this web site.
