:: Recording Notes ::
0 - "This is another combination of several British plays, widespread, in various forms, through the Caribbean area as well as the Southern United States. It is one of the most satisfying of all Mrs. Jones's plays, but to really enjoy it remember that it is a play, a ceremonial tracing of pattern, not a game." --Step It Down [Source: Step It Down]
