The official release date for the second in the series of re-issues is September 21st
Entitled A PERFECT LANDING it can be pre-ordered at

It is a selection of fifteen old love songs which includes acoustic only, spoken word with music and professionally arranged tracks They were chosen for this album during a stay on the island of Tiree 

With the exception of THE WATER IS DEEP most of the songs were written, and all were recorded, in Glasgow, Scotland

As previously mentioned, the overall aim of the series is to present something of the range of songs which have been produced over several decades and to have them better dressed for the occasion The images which are being used to achieve this - for this album - are from photographs taken recently on Tiree in Scotland

For those who are familiar with the material they will not find anything new in the selection although it has been remastered and the order of the tracks will hopefully add to the listening experience The title A PERFECT LANDING has also been used before but using it again was unavoidable 

A list of the songs on the album can be seen on the back cover below

The selection of songs entitled OUT THERE SOMEWHERE originally consisted of three tracks The revised selection has ten

The opening and closing tracks are the previously released singles GO ON THEN CONVINCE ME and ON THE ROAD TO HAID GWAII And in-between are eight spoken word tracks Some of these have not previously been 'out there' - although I cannot be completely sure about that 

What I can say - with certainly - is that the above selection and the planned series of re-issues of my material - is not motivated by a wish to make money 

It is, as the title of the post implies, a desire to present it in a more pleasing way - and this includes dressing it up in some professionally designed attire

I would also like to alert those who are interested in the material on Bandcamp that OUT THERE SOMEWHERE has been revised There were two equally demanding ways to achieve this and the one I have chosen requires me to reload the tracks And in consideration of those who purchased the original three track version the ten track selection is free to download 

For anyone interested; below is a link to a wikipedia article on the subject of re-issues
