Ooooo... I have a CD... it is out of its packaging and the blurb is read (that Pete Atkin really is a very nice fellow—such modest warmth) but I dare not start to listen because I expect a visitor at any moment.
 
I was touched to notice that in the vast corporation that is Hillside Music one of the minions in the despatch department so admires our hero that (s)he has imitated his handwriting while addressing the package.  Of course this could be cynical attention to detail: reinforcing the Atkin brand with a common look and feel that extends even to the mailing labels. I prefer to imagine the star-struck despatch operative.

Mine finally arrived this morning - phew...  Just about to sit and listen to it as I sit here pretending to work (I work for myself, I should add, so I may need to subject myself to disciplinary procedures if I find out that I'm slacking).  Nicely packaged by the team at the Hillside Conglomerate plc, though sadly mine had only a printed label which reassuringly confirms that Theo's handwritten one was indeed the product of a star-struck operative rather than cynical brand manipulation on the part of the Atkin marketing machine...
 
Now for the music...

The Bristol Postie has scaled the foothills of Cotham from Hillside Music in Archfield Road  to deliver the new CD  to my office in Kingsdown....half a mile away! Come to think if it,  perhaps I should have asked PA whether I could have collected from the door!
 
Delighted to have the new versions -  some similar, some different, but all living up to
my expectations following the memorable concert at St George's.  Grateful thanks Pete to you and your colleagues for re-visiting old friends and transforming them into new ones!

Now I'm really jealous!  No package this morning, and we're off to South Wales for a half term today , so a) I miss Newbury, and b) I have to wait a whole week for my PA fix!
 
Oh, well, I'll just have to keep telling myself that it's the antici.........pation that's best part.

Yes, it's here.  A Hillside package has winged its way and found its mark on a Pennine Lancashire hillside.  So no time to talk to you, off to listen to it.

OK, so I am a tad tardy, but I ordered it today.  Lets see how long it takes to cross the water.

I have my copy, its great - I did wonder if Clive was going to add vocals to Laughing Boy - I must be listening to my copy of the Live in Australia CDs too often!!  I still laugh along with Billy Carts and Dunny Man.  
 
I am enjoying getting to know the new versions of the songs and can't wait to see Pete in action again and hear some more new material.
 
I live in Sussex, it would be great to see Pete at The Ravenwood again.
 
All the best to Pete, Clive and all fellow MVs
