  • ☄ 'Hosting Of The Shee' Signed Manuscript ☄

    This Limited Edition Manuscript, with each copy individually signed by Mike and Steve, was only available for a very short time with advance orders of the excellent 'An Appointment With Mr Yeats' album from Townsend Records. Initially, it sold out in about an hour and the Dynamic Duo kindly hand signed more copies which also completely sold out within a couple of hours. The manuscript which shows the violin part from the album's opening track The Hosting Of The Shee, and rendered in the Wickham hand, is printed on 135 gram Matt Art Paper. It is a lovely addition to the album.

  • ☄ The Believer - July 2009 Edition ☄

    This magazine comes with a free CD which contains a quite wonderful demo (which lasts for 10 minutes and 10 seconds) by Mike Scott of 'A Wild Holy Band' (an early version of 'Long Strange Golden Road') that is exclusive to this release.

    Mike writes: 'I wrote this song in my bedroom in Scotland at six in the morning, just up, in a songwriting mood, trawling through old notebooks and journals from the late 1990s looking for any ideas that might be lying there forgotten. To my surprise, I found the first verse intact on the page of a journal. I must have written it some years before, and had only the dimmest memory of it. The verse suggested more words, a lyrical theme, and in my head I heard a tune. The song followed'.

    This publication is quite difficult to find but it is well worth seeking out.
