THE BOY IN THE SAILOR SUIT - ONLINE MP3 SAMPLES
===============================================

We've uploaded a few extracts from the superb new Dave Cousins album
"The Boy In The Sailor Suit" onto Strawbsweb for you listen - you'll get
a feel for the breadth and depth of the album, which in my view contains
some of Dave's best writing for a number of years.

Go to: http://www.strawbsweb.co.uk/dlds/bsdlds.asp

BUT PLEASE - DON'T DO IT ALL AT ONCE OR STRAWBSWEB
WILL BUST ITS BANDWIDTH ALLOWANCE !!!


========================================
BUY FROM WITCHWOOD RECORDS ONLINE SHOP -
GET UNRELEASED DAVE COUSINS SONGS
========================================

You can buy "The Boy In The Sailor Suit" from
www.witchwoodrecords.co.uk using the online shop and you will be able
to download two Dave Cousins solo tracks in MP3 format from the
archives - there are no plans to release these in any other format.

The first is "Judgment Day", which Dave considered for inclusion on this
album. The second is the irreverent "Virgin Mother". Both are vintage
Cousins demos dating back into the 1970s.

You can order with immediate effect, and download the bonus tracks.
The CD will be delivered on or around the official release date of 25
June.

UK
--

Tuesday 7 Aug 2007 - Half Moon, Putney
Wednesday 8 Aug - Astor Theatre, Deal
Saturday 11 August - Fairport's Cropredy Festival


Now confirmed that that Strawbs will be playing at Cropredy on
Saturday 11th August rather than Thursday 9th August. This is great
news for Strawbs and their fans, I think - there'll be a much bigger crowd
on the Saturday than on Thursday, and Strawbs fans can buy a Saturday
only ticket, considerably cheaper than the full three day ticket, if they
prefer.


====================
FIRE LIVE DATES 2007
====================

Dates are: November 30, December 1, 2007
[omitted from original posting - oops: DG]

Dave Lambert has confirmed the dates for the Fire reunion shows, which
will take place at a venue in the Thames Valley area, about half an hour
outside London. The show, featuring the classic line-up of Lambert,
Dufall and Voice, with special guests, will about 100 minutes long, and
will comprise the whole of The Magic Shoemaker, adapted to include
Father's Name Is Dad, Treacle Toffee world and other material of Dave's
from that period.

Tickets should go on sale in August.
