Colin Tench tells us,

“The album is complete and in preparation for CD manufacture. The cast list is a dream come true. The diversity of the players and pieces  is what makes this album special to me. The album structure could be labelled Prog before there was Prog. Split this into the written piece “Hair in a G-String” (about 46 minutes) & “Songs not in G” (About 36 minutes) and you’d have a prog album and a melodic rock album I guess. We didn’t do that. We mixed it up. See it as musical interludes between the main action.”

I’ve heard And So, Today with the great Peter Jones on vocals and am happy to say that this release is sounding rather exciting!
