The 3CD release of the A&M albums with bonus tracks is now available to order from Amazon and other online retailers as well as good record shops if you want to support them!

Nice package with great pictures and layout, with sleeve notes by me with a little assistance from others from time to time.

Delighted that this stuff is finally available legitimately - hopefully Caroline/Universal will now have a good reason to get Ebay to take down the bootleg copies of the individual CDs which come up from time to time.

The DVD and 2 CDs feature the full 2 hour concert filmed at Fibbers in York and DVD extras include rehearsal, studio footage and a rehearsal and tour photo movie. The DVD is NTSC, Region 0 format, so should play on all DVD players.
