Notes

1-4: Recorded summer 2003, Parish of Berkswell ~ Session recorded for Radio WZBC (USA) and first broadcast 19.03.04 by George Killgoar III

5-7: Recorded summer 1999, Solihull ~ B-Sides taken from the At The Height Of Summer 7" EP released on Roisin Recordings

8-9: Recorded spring 2002, Parish of Berkswell - Two tracks inspired by the 20th Century artists Harry Wingfield and Ronald Lampitt, who finely illustrated Ladybird books and other children's publications. 'Childhood Illustrator' was recorded after visiting an exhibition of Harry Wingfield's 'Ladybird originals' where he was due to give a talk about his life and art. Unfortunately, Harry was unable to attend due to ill health and passed away the following week. Influential gentlemen from a fast fading generation.

10-11: Recorded winter 2003, Parish of Berkswell.

12: Recorded summer 1999, Solihull ~ The fields of Wiltshire, as mysterious as ever...

13-17: Recorded 2002 to 2003, Barnt Green, Solihull & Wheaton Aston ~ Unreleased tracks recorded for The English Cold album which was inspired by the abandoned WWII airfields of Britain and the countryside surrounding them. In researching the album, be it exploring the derelict buildings and structures amongst rural fields or those which overlooked windswept coasts, the sense of past activities, imagined conversations and former habitation from sixty years ago was all too vivid and overwhelming at times. During recording, Ben, Rob and I stood in a Staffordshire field one cold November evening watching night fall across RAF Wheaton Aston. Looming over us, the remains of the monolithic firing wall. We stood, then knelt, waiting, just waiting for the 'Lost Airman'. We returned home later, cold but emotional to record 'Waiting To Land'.

18: Recorded summer 1999, Solihull

19: Recorded 02.02.02, ICA, The Mall, London ~ Live recording of the first ever July Skies performance.
