Hi Al -- nice to have you with us.
 
No, not on sale yet. Provisional release dates are in the February/March period. Pete went into more detail in his latest newsletter, reproduced here.

Thanks, Steve.
 
It will be good to be able to buy Pete's albums at reasonable prices; ebay prices have been way too high! Looking forward to getting King At Nightfall on CD at long last!

Not long to wait now -- the first two (single) CDs are scheduled for release on February 2nd, with the remainder (2 double CDs) on March 2nd.
 
I've placed copies of the Edsel promotional sales sheets for the first two albums on the Smash Flops home page.

Hello everybody  
 
Val Jennings at Edsel here. Please excuse this shocking example of doorstep selling, but I'd be failing myself if I didn't alert all the Midnight Voices to the fact that the Edsel editions of "Beware.." and "Driving..." are now available for pre-order on both Amazon at £6.79 and HMV.com at £6.99. Here are the links, should you want to paste them into your browser:  
 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beware-Beautiful-Pete-Atkin/dp/B001NOMONI/ref=sr_1_12?ie =UTF8&s=music&qid=1231521260&sr=8-12  
 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Driving-Across-Mythical-Pete-Atkin/dp/B001NOMONS/ref=sr_ 1_14?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1231521260&sr=8-14  
 
http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=281;1;-1;-1;-1&sku=919685  
 
http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=281;1;-1;-1;-1&sku=919737  
 
Amazon have left the last word off each title, and have sales notes but no tracklistings, whereas HMV have tracklsitings but no notes, and mention a "Clive Davis".  
 
Perhaps I'll meet some of you on Sunday at Walthamstow...

Is the Hillside Shop likely to be able to take advantage of this merchandising opportunity?

Amazon also now has 'A King At Nightfall & The Road Of Silk' and 'Secret Drinker... Plus & Live Libel' both for £7.79, for release on 2 March. No track lists posted yet.
 
Just think - that means you could get all four (six) albums for under £30!

At the Walthamstow gig Pete pointed out that he had recorded Midnight Voices The Songbook Vol 1 because he hadn't expected the original albums to ever be available again.  As he spoke I imagined MV Vol2 bursting like a bubble;  no need for it now. I had been looking forward to the release of MV Vol2 and will be sorry if it doesn't happen - events that don't occur are still events you know (sorry  Wink).  Presumably it would be a bit rude to Edsel Demon to do it just now... but maybe in a couple of years?   Just call me greedy  Smiley

Well, yes, that was at least a part of the thinking - if the original versions were to have remained unreissued, re-doing them at least made sure that the songs could continue to be available and under my control.  Doing them a bit differently was an extra justification, I hope.  So with the originals all out there once again, doing them a bit differently becomes the primary reason for revisiting another batch.  And there are certainly enough that I'm doing differently enough these days for a Volume Two to be a realistic prospect.   It's just that to do it as my very next project feels like a bit too continual an emphasis on the past.  We'll see. Watch this space.

Thanks Pete and Amen to that; New songs first, gorgeous re-creations of older ones to follow in due course - with Simon Wallace hopefully - that'll be fine thanks!

I'm looking forwards to these releases, even though I was lucky enough to get one of the See For Miles double CDs of Beautiful Stranger/DTMA when Pete found some in a box in 2007. From Pete's newsletter notes it sounds as if it will be worth buying both again for the archive research which Val Jennings has put into the re-releases (especially at Edsel's admirably recession-friendly budget prices.)
 
To the person who doesn't know Mythical America (but knows Beautiful Stranger), well, you're in for a treat, I'd say. Beautiful Stranger is a good record, but Mythical America is a great record; rich, complex, subtle.
 
So having been a little controversial, perhaps I should be more controversial: is it only me who thinks there's no reason - other than perverse completism - to re-issue Live Libel? A thin set of musical jokes when it came out which has interest now only to cultural historians...
 
Best
 
Andrew
