Reading Rocks again!
We are delighted to announce the release of a SPECIAL EDITION of the Reading Rock DVD, which includes, for the first time, a bonus CD-R of the four tracks, broadcast by the BBC, that feature on the DVD.
As you may know Festival-goer and Twelfth Night fan Colin Dodd filmed us from the crowd and sent us his fantastic footage back in 2008. Unfortunately the audio soundtrack on his footage was unusable. However, as the BBC had recorded and broadcast most of our set on the Friday Rock Show, back in 1983, they very kindly let us have their stereo master tape.
Although the footage is only from a single camera, if you have fond memories of seeing Geoff in 1983, or indeed never saw him perform with the band, then this tight 40 minute set consisting of The Ceiling Speaks, Creepshow, The Poet Sniffs a Flower and Sequences will take you right back.
David Read lovingly and painstakingly re-mastered the video with the BBC audio, enhancing it with some truly wonderful state-of-the-art animated stills. He also designed the DVD cover & disc, and the 4-page colour booklet for us. Thanks to Spence for the CD-R artwork.
As with all our releases, there are lots of extras, including four performances filmed at Reading University in Jan. 1983 (We Are Sane & 3 others), an interview with Brian & Clive, slideshows, and some other bonuses which you’ll need to buy the DVD to find!
There is a short trailer here at our YouTube channel.
The Special Edition is available at the same price as before £ 12 + P&P, and can be found here.
Don’t forget that besides all the physical merchandise (CDs, DVDs) here on our website there are no less than 35 albums!! that can be downloaded from our Bandcamp page. Many of these, including all of Geoff’s Mann’s albums, are no longer available as CDs.
