Just as Tim lived his life doing everything the hard way, so went the making of ‘Racional Vol. 3’. Only a handful of people knew about the existence of a rumored third volume of Rational recordings until 2007, when some songs appeared on a Brazilian blog, described as the lost Rational recordings, presumably recorded at the end of his time with Rational Culture. This is just as essential an artifact of Tim’s time involved in Rational Culture as the first two albums.
