This is a preview of the music for the story of “Layliana”

This is a preview of the music for the story of “Layliana”, the first in a series of Fairytales  (Books with Graphic audio and Illustrations)  by James & Susan Blennerhassett & Vitya Malirsh which will be published later this year.

I will be starting a Fundit campaign shortly to help us get the first two books published. Please keep an eye out for this project and I would appreciate your help in this labour of love.

Mail order music

I was trying to explain to my teenage daughters today about when I was a teenager in Rural Ireland and the difficulty we had in buying any rock LPs at the time ( what’s an LP Dad? ).
I remember ordering the new Status Quo album “Piledriver” by mail order from Virgin records and the excitement when it arrived weeks later in a cardboard sleeve, calling all the lads to come and hear the new record on the record player….epic!
Wasted words…they didn’t get it at all in their world of instant downloads!
