This will be amazing.

_______________

Leader Of The Starry Skies - A Tribute To Tim Smith. Songbook 1

Tracklisting

TBC
Biog

This is not just a tribute album. It is an endeavour borne of love.


Tim Smith composer, principal songwriter, lead singer and guitarist of Cardiacs and other seminal music projects suffered a severe stroke in 2008. Two years on he continues to be treated in hospital. All profits from this album will go towards a fund to help get Tim home. The artists appearing have generously given their time and creativity freely. This is a testament to the love we all have for Tim.

Featuring ~ William D Drake, Oceansize, Steven Wilson, Julianne Reagan, Ultrasound, Knifeworld, North Sea Radio Orchestra, Robert White and Andy Partridge plus many more....


Your pre-order will entitle you to download a free, exclusive album of Tim's songs covered by friends and family.This extra album will ONLY be available to pre-orders. On day of release you will be sent an email link to download all the MP3s

_________

You'll be wanting that free download album too, trust me. Preorder it. Tim's worth every penny of the tenner and more.

As if the cause weren't good enough already, Andy Partridge is on this! Come payday I am pre-ordering this.

Anybody else see this month's Guitarist magazine? There's a little piece about Steven Wilson's admiration for Tim Smith.

We need you back, Tim, you're missed by many. Lots of love.

Allow me to assist. Well, allow me to link to a scan posted up by another Cardiacs fan, if I'm being precise:

It still seems to be genuinely TBC, even for some of the artists involved, as to whether they'll be on the "main" CD or the bonus MP3 album, but hopefully we'll all know soon...

All is not lost. The 2nd album has been put up on iTunes, with three extra tracks that wouldn't fit on the CD (although preorderers got sent them as free downloads):
