For many, many years, Kate and Anna McGarrigle's third album, Pronto Monto, first released in 1978 was not available on CD. Now, finally and somewhat mysteriously, it suddenly is. William pounced on it. He enjoys revisiting this beautiful, if perhaps somewhat flawed album, on which their label Warner Brothers tried to pull the sisters away from their niche audience.
