Busy week here at SDE, as usual, even though there is snow chaos in the UK!
The printed ‘keepsake’ edition of the SDE Roxy Music interviews with Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera came back from the printers. They look superb, even if I do say so myself! Very much consistent with the long sold-out McCartney ‘producers’ booklet from last year, except this time we’ve invested in licensing some archive photos for the front cover and gloss-laminated the cover for a luxury finish. It gives the whole thing a bit of ‘wow’ factor, I hope. Both interviews are there in full and although it’s a snug fit, this will squeeze nicely into the super deluxe edition box set of Roxy Music (I’ve tested it).
I’ll give you some numbers: we’ve printed a run of 450 of these. Each will be hand-numbered and I’m signing them as well. Almost 300 have been ordered in the last week, so I expect these to be completely sold out soon, probably by the end of this month. Click the graphic below, if you’d like to place an order. Shipping starts on Monday.
I’d love to do more of these printed booklets, if the demand is there. To that end, I’d like some feedback from you. What would you like to see next, as a special printed edition? Perhaps the poignant last interview with Pete Burns of Dead Or Alive? All three parts of my 2016 Bowie tribute ‘A Life Listening To David Bowie’? Or maybe some kind of ‘special’ on Kate Bush – for example a booklet devoted to Before The Dawn, featuring recollections on the build-up, going to the show, the David Rhodes interview about his experience rehearsing and playing at the show, and more. Maybe it’s none of those things! Please vote below and let me know, or if you have something specific in mind, just leave a comment in the usual manner.
