Just a reminder about Roy's gig on 26th Sept.
The Ram Jam Club at the Grey Horse
46 Richmond Road
Doors Open 7pm.
INCLUDES A FREE SWITZERLAND FOUR TRACK CD
Sadly, Roy's long-awaited second solo album ever, Switzerland, due to be launched and on sale that night, is not quite yet finished. Roy comments:
"After six short years Switzerland, the highly anticipated (anticipated by who? Mrs GK of Lancs) follow-up to my 1978 debut album, Roy Hill, is almost finished. A few days ago I thought it actually was finished but decided against a premature, George Bush-type, the war with Iraq is over, announcement. Good job really as there are a couple of tracks that need improving so improve them I must. Anyone who was coming to my solo show at the Ram Jam Club in downtown Kingston on Sunday 26 September to purchase a copy may be disappointed but, let's be honest, probably not that surprised. However ...
Everyone who does come to the Ram Jam Club on Sunday 26 September will get a … FREE FOUR TRACK SWITZERLAND SAMPLER CD ... Yes, that's right, FREE. Four tracks, from Switzerland, on CD, FREE and it's only £5 to get in! To good to be true you say? Rubbing your eyes in disbelief? Got one of those quizzical, I must be dreaming looks going on? Well, dear heart, it's true ..."
The completed album will be available by mail order from Deepdene Records in October, price £10 + postage. Order in advance from firstname.lastname@example.org and He'll mail it post free.
