ah ! thanks.

okay I piped FIND's output to a .txt file and used -T Top-Dir.txt as
the input and thar she blows ! Extract works. I thought tar could
read from stdin.

guess I got carried away with this from the manual:

$ find dir tests | \
  tar -cf archive -T - --no-recursion

Okay, I've got 2 work-arounds.
