    You missed the release I’m most looking forward to on Friday – the new Big Big Train album, Folklore.

    Available on CD / download from their website or on vinyl at Burning Shed

      Chris I’ve just been emailed by Burning Shed informing me my order of Big Big Train ‘Folklore’ on CD and LP has been dispatched, so I’m hoping to have them by Wednesday this week.

      For me this is going to be the ‘Album Of The Year’. Big Big Train are the greatest Prog band that exists at this time. Those of you who have a taste for Prog but have not heard BBT get this new album and work your way back through their catalog. You will not be disappointed.

    Hi Paul, thanks for another update, the Leonard Cohen links currently point to Steve Hackett…hidden meaning?
