I really can't wait until mine is delivered - perhaps I should move to the States - it seems that delivery is quicker over there
I must complain more - it was delivered within 2 hours of my compliant - Does Jules control Royal Mail ?

Lots of things to comment about the 1973 New Horizons program. Nobody?
The photo session in the station for the BITF sleeve... outstanding. What a class, what a good taste, everything is perfect, the ambient, the costumes, the band, the women, the children.
The BITF concert.... A 5 piece band, the Gwalia Male Choir in suit, two dancers on stage... what a unique concert! That C'mon and Jam up jelly tight have always been from another world. Also Sospan Fach, of course. I would pay a crazy amount of money to have the whole BITF concert in video. There are only a few seconds of C'mon, all edited pieces of different moments. Please!
Two questions:
Why Will didn't appear as a BITF composer? It seems he is showing the melody and the rhytm to the rest of the band.
Is that Deke sitting behind Terry during C'mon? He has a butterfly tattoo in his right arm.

Hi Joan. I believe contractual issues prevented Will from receiving a credit. Similar to why his songwriting was credited as y.willis on the Neutrons two albums.

Happy to be corrected if anyone knows better

Received mine today within 2 days of ordering.

Watched the New Horizons programme so far. BITF is not of my favourite songs but it's interesting seeing it being put together.

A lot more to get through and the most exciting release in some time.

Surprised and sad to see there are almost no reviews from the people here!

A RECENTLY DISCOVERED 28 MINUTE BBC TV DOCUMENTARY FILMED IN 1973
It's a great program but it's not 28 minutes but 24:32...
