Wrong Turns

Okay a couple of things that I messed up on.  I realized that I was linking to the wrong Man In Space music group so I went to change all of the links and ended up releasing The Machine Stops, part 2 earlier than intended.  I could have deleted the post, but the mp3 had already gone out to iTunes so what is the point.  Anyway, enjoy the back to back postings.
