Aha!  Back at the Pheasantry - hooray!  Once again with Simon Wallace, natch.    I'd have liked a slightly earlier one, of course, but we haven't been able to organise a date that works for all of us, but never mind.   This one's not yet in their listing, I think, but it is inked in.,  And hey, it's a Saturday this time.

 6   Pete Atkin / Words / On the walls of Troy...  20.12.18 at 18:25 
Started by Seán Kelly | Newest post by Seán Kelly
Looking at my copy of the final edition of Christopher Logue's War Music (his "account" in modern poetry of parts of Homer's Iliad) I finally noticed that it features a helicopter on the front cover and wondered if the designer knew The Last Hill That Shows You All The Valley....  
 
There is in fact a brief reference to a helicopter in the book but it is "whumphing on the dunes", not landing on the walls of Troy.  Close enough though!
 
See the cover at  : https://www.poetrybooks.co.uk/products/war-music-an-account-of-homers-iliad-by-christopher-logue  
 
The edition is the final one because Logue died in 2011, having worked on War Music for decades.  I first heard him reading some of it in the early 1980's.  I must say that it's great stuff in my opinion  Smiley

 10   Pete Atkin / News / Hillside Music: Worldpay  10.12.18 at 18:57 
Started by S J Birkill | Newest post by S J Birkill
I learned yesterday from Pete that three people had had to order CDs from Hillside Music by cheque (remember those? -- the cheques, I mean) after failing to get a response from the Worldpay credit-card ordering system -- clicking through from the Shop to enter their card details had returned them only a "couldn't connect" message.
 
It turns out that that Worldpay recently changed the Internet address for their on-line form submission (from the one we've been using for the past 17 years) and we'd somehow failed to notice, until yesterday. But it's all fixed now, and once again the virtual tills are ringing with orders at Hillside's vast semi-automated virtual warehouse somewhere down the M4.
 
So don't delay -- there may yet be time to send your friends a set of Atkin CDs with which to celebrate the mid-winter festival. Just go to https://www.peteatkin.com/hillshop.htm and make your selection from the titles currently in stock:
 
The Colours of the Night
Midnight Voices
Live in Australia
Winter Spring
The Lakeside Sessions, Volume 1
The Lakeside Sessions, Volume 2
 
plus four items from The Shrinks, all featuring our hero's skill on the 88's. All titles are selling for £5 apiece (plus appropriate P&P) except for TCOTN which is £10.
 
Steve
