NEWS OF TWO NEW TITLES ISSUED TODAY, PLUS IAIN MATTHEWS & IAN CLAYTON’s UK-WIDE WORDS AND MUSIC TOUR

Bringing It All Back Home | New Updated Edition
Ian Clayton’s music memoir Bringing It All Back Home was first published in 2006 and quickly established itself as a classic of its genre, creating a template which many others have copied, but not equalled. Described by the editor of Record Collector on its release as ‘One of the best books about popular music ever written’ word of mouth continues to propel the book to new readers. And now, as it moves into its seventh edition, Ian Clayton has added a section to the end of the book to bring it up to date, plus we have added a handful of photographs for the first time. We have signed copies in stock. Click here for more.

What We Did Instead of Holidays | Paperback Edition
Released in hardback last autumn, Clinton Heylin’s What We Did Instead of Holidays: A History of Fairport Convention and Its Extended Folk Rock Family was described by Rock N Reel magazine as ‘Undoubtedly the fullest account yet to appear of both the band and the hugely influential musicians who have passed through its ranks.’ Telling the full story of these folk-rock pioneers at the peak of their success, Clinton Heylin has managed to untangle the great web of the so-called Fotheringport Confusion. The book is released in paperback today. You can grab a copy (or one of the few remaining hardback first editions) by clicking here.

Words and Music Tour
Iain Matthews and Ian Clayton will be taking to the road in the autumn for UK-wide Words and Music tour that will bring to life Iain’s memoir Thro’ My Eyes: Ian Clayton will read stories from the book interspersed with live songs from Iain Matthews. The show will be a highly entertaining and intimate occasion, rich in stories and wonderful live music, presenting the story of an artistic life through the eyes of one of our most enduring singer-songwriters.
