Expresso - 2nd Wind

It's been a long time coming! 2nd Wind is our long awaited follow-up CD to Expresso's 1982 debut album, First Cup.

2nd Wind was recorded in 1983, but never made it to vinyl, sitting quietly dormant for over 30 years. Finally, after renewed interest in completing this project, we transferred the  2 inch master "tapes" to digital, added a few finishing touches, mixed it down and are proud to share with you, 2nd Wind.
