'L'Huile Sur Le Feu' was first released as a Bruce's Fingers cassette (BFC 32) in 1991, although the recordings date from 1987-89. The album's definitely from Simon's 'experimental' phase, including as it does keyboard arrangements of early compositions, two electronic cadenzas, and most unusually of all a pair of songs - not a form which has occupied much of Simon's time since. For those who enjoy archive work, here it is.

[collector's note: the earlier 1988 BF album 'The Coral Island' (BFC 13) consisted of tracks 3-9 of this later release; the artwork for this release is also included with the download.]
