    Thanks, as ever Robert! And Nicholas, sorry - didn't feel it necessary to list all the dates he did on that tour :) but if you saw it, you're one lucky guy!

    Thanks for this John.

    Looking forward to hearing the whole thing next week upon release. iTunes is releasing its version with a bonus track. 'Strawberry Fields'.

    Bill played Jazz Alley here in Seattle four nights with the Beautiful Dreamers project and one of the highlights was 'Strawberry Fields' so I'm happy to see it part of the new recording.

    I caught the band Sunday night, the final night of the gig and it was extraordinary. They do one set only Sunday nights and over the years I've had the great good fortune to hear some remarkable music making. Without having to break to clear the house for a second show the evenings are more like a concert. This Sunday the band did just about two hours. Highlights were a majestic "Masters of War', a drop dead hip 'Goin Out of My Head' and, 'Strawberry Fields'

    Just about as good as it gets.

    Thanks for writing, Richard, and for hipping me to that bonus track - gotta get my hands on that!

    Thanks for the news about the show, too...I'm insanely jealous!
    Best!
