Hi pledgers,

Well at last after more than two years the date has finally arrived. I'm exhausted and skint but I guess I now have my work cut out promoting it to get the return on my investment. On that note:

  1. I have been collecting reviews of the album (2 in so far) which I am delighted to say are fantastic. I shall send a separate email about the reviews.
  2. I will be on the Jonathan Ray Breakfast Show for BBC Radio Bristol at 8.30am this Sunday (Remembrance Sunday) discussing the album and Harry Patch. The show runs from 6am till 10am and I will be on at 8.30am for about 10mins and they will play a track. It should be on iPlayer for a month so no need to get up early ;-) Here is the link:
  3. I will also be appearing on Kizzy Morrell's afternoon show on Thursday 17th November for Ujima Radio (98fm) and she is trying to persuade me to play a track live in the studio (gulp). Here is that link:
  4. Interest has also been shown by a theatre producer from Taunton, Ged Stephenson. Ged is also a college lecturer. Here is a link to his Weston College overview: I have an initial meeting arranged with him on 2nd December to discuss options so I will report back on how that goes.

The feedback so far on the album (and the artwork) has been amazing and I thank you all for your contributions. I know that some of you prefer to have the tracks in digital format only (and I couple only pledged for that anyway) but the finished CD and 16-page booklet look fantastic so I hope you will get in touch for a copy.

Physical CD's and other pledged items

I am now delighted to say that I collected the physical CD's last night and have in place ALL the other pledge items ready to ship to you. What I lack are your addresses in many cases so could you please get back to me by phone or email and I will make the arrangements to ship everything to you ASAP.

Mobile: 07985 252517


I do hope you will find the album was worth waiting for. I am certainly proud of the finished result and particularly proud of everyone that has contributed, especially you for helping me to fund it.

Best wishes,
