Note for the 2006 release
The tracks of this new album were assembled for a worldwide audience and the forthcoming Dutch autumn tour 2006 in response to the many requests for recordings of Chris, Linda and Matt live. There are also included three studio tracks. A sentimental version of “Gypsy”, Linda’s “Moving on” and Autumn Dreaming Blues from the long vanished mid-sixties Paul Stewart (aka Chris Simpson). Recordings of rare, early archive material. Linda’s superb and achlingly poem “Silver lining” is a fortaste of more. And not to forget the absolute highlight of the concerts the song “Fields of Eden”.

The tracks were compiled from a wide range of venues all over the Netherlands not least the famed Café Amen, 9lb Hammer, live in the Amsterdam Paradiso. All these performances are precious memories to the extensive 2005 tour in Holland. Magnamilestones in their way. Listen and enjoy!
