Hi Douglas - well done, it looks good. Only mistake I can see is you've put that recording started in December 2011 and we're not there yet!

Thank you, Maureen. :)

Does anyone know the running time?

According to my calculations (which may not be accurate, as I'm not feeling very awake yet!), it should be 52:09

I knew I should have bought two copies - my copy has vanished .....(although I think I can hear it playing upstairs!)

It's very good as a workout aid at the gym!
When you're a kid, they tell you it's all "grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that's it." But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It's so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.

It's a great album, but did you expect anything less from j & j   ;D

I'm waiting until it comes out to buy a copy. I'm hoping I don't get too impatient in the meantime.  :-\

Same here Aly.....but now wish I'd bought a copy at the Bury gig last week. I am getting impatient :(

argh! So jealous of you all having the CD. I'd have loved to catch them in Oxford but unfortunately I've been way too busy with uni stuff. Is there no other way to get hold of the album/ETA on when there will be? I'm really impatient ):

I got mine during the interval in Cambridge, but they ran out of time so could not sign it.  They offered to do so after the show but there was a huge queue then and I had a train to catch.  Never mind, the music is the main thing and I am very pleased with the album - and they were very pleasant to talk to for about 30 seconds.  :)

Judging by other postings here I am lucky to have a copy  :)  It also  inspired me later to buy some of their earlier albums (I already had "Vagabond").

Mine arrived today, and apart from sounding great, the packaging is really well done - reminds me of the advantage of CD over download! Looking forward to Larmer Tree as well!
