40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
VOL 1: STRAWBERRY FAYRE (2CD)
VOL 2: RICK WAKEMAN & DAVE COUSINS (CD+DVD)
=============================================

STRAWBERRY FAYRE (2CD)
----------------------

I now have information on the much-awaited first recordings from the 40th Anniversary last September. Scheduled for release on 5th October, Vol. 1 is a 2CD set of highlights from the whole weekend, with a 16 page booklets with photographs and line-up details. The track listing is below.

There's a cover image and further info on musicians and, in due course, previews/reviews on the main Strawberry Fayre page at:

http://www.strawbsweb.co./albtrack/fayre/fayre.asp

Pre-ordering
------------

We will shortly open up the usual pre-ordering process with Witchwood Records where, if you order online before a date in August (TBC, but either 14th or 21st) your name will be included in the Strwaberry Fayre booklet only (we're not including names in the Wakeman /Cousins release). I hope you will be able to support this release in this way, as many of you have before. I'll e-mail the Strawbswebnews list/Witchwood as soon as this is available.

Both packages are priced at 15.99 plus p&p from Witchwood Records; we'll be offering a pre-order special price for both at 27.00 plus p&p.
