Bill Bruford’s Earthworks

Footloose And Fancy Free Signed Edition (signed cd)

Bill says, “The final copies of this CD are slightly flawed, but unusually and perhaps attractively so. The CD label has light pencilled ‘rhythms’ on it as part of the artwork and under the words ‘Bill Bruford’s’ the next word ‘Earthworks’ is missing. Printer’s error. Does this make them collectable? Possibly, possibly not!”

This wonderful double live album shows Bruford in the context of the later acoustic sax-piano jazz quartet incarnation of his long-running Earthworks band.

Shipping now. All copies are signed by Bill.

Richard Barbieri

Variants 1 and 2 (cds)

The Variants EPs are a series of releases by Richard Barbieri that collect disparate pieces of music from past and current works that don’t fit in with new album plans or concepts, but which Richard feels deserve to be heard.

At the end of this series, a beautiful and expansive package will be available (in which to house the CDs and better display the artwork across the releases).

Variants 1 and 2 are back in stock and shipping now. CDs in card wallets.

    Want the Bowie! Adrian Belew on guitar; Roger Powell (Utopia) on keyboards; Simon House (Hawkwind) on violin. Hopefully less manicured than the Stage album.
