Unsold Hillside stock discovered!

Near-miraculous find in Bristol basement! Two boxes of mint-condition pressings of the original (2001) individual CD volumes of "The Lakeside Sessions" have been found, after having long being considered extinct. Rather than re-inter them, their discoverer, one Mr P R Atkin, has elected to sell them on the open market, through an Internet-based retailer, the Hillside Music Shop.
Content is exactly the same as the later double-CD version, and represents a 21st-Century reworking of a selection of songs, some of which would have been included on Pete Atkin's seventh LP album back in the 1970s, had events taken a different course. Pete revived many of these for his Monyash Festival performance in 1997, and without the support of Midnight Voices, some of the greatest Atkin/James songs, including History And Geography, Canoe, A Dream Of Fair Women, Femme Fatale, The Eye Of The Universe, Search And Destroy, The Commercial Traveller and You Alone Will Be My Last Adventure, might have been lost forever.
