    So sad. Thank you Allan for all the fun I have had from your and Neilen’s music. Thinking of you Nielen and sending good thoughts to you.

  2. I love Falling Mirror and wish they’d re-release all their albums; a “best of” is no substitute. Really sad to read this about Allan, I remember him from Sillwood days, as a very quiet and humble soul.
