I'm looking for info but I'm pretty sure that 6 Songs For Democracy was never a 
K number, being on the Music Room International label instead. Seems to me that 
the second Music Room album was a set of records dubbed from Topic (UK). I've 
had one of the discs and am looking to see where I logged the information.
