ELP Cover?
« on: July 01, 2010, 04:04:56 AM »
I promise to not write a book in asking one simple question.... Has Jem shared any of the ELP cover song he was going to do??  Fanfare for the Common Man???  I get light headed just thinking what he might do in such a rendition! lol  If it exists, please share.   If you haven't completed it yet Jem, please do.... :)  In your "spare" time of course!  

Warm Regards,

Reacting as I do on the off-chance that the boss might not pop back in for a few days, the Fanfare cover has been done for a week or three. It was submitted to the magazine, who apparently liked it, and it is due to hit newstands in the UK in 6 days time.
I've not heard it yet and I don't know of anyone outside the band who has.
Exactly what will happen to it after the mag is on sale I don't know.
Hopefully it will find a way to get to folk who can't buy the mag somehow....after a suitable amount of time(?)

Jem also stated he's got two Frost* Reports ready to go, but holding off until the mag comes out as they have chunks of Fanfare in them.
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around

Does anyone in the UK know if it will be available at WH Smiths, or will I have to go somewhere else? :?

They did have some distribution issue initially, but I think most reasonably sized WHSmith's will stock it

NB - Other newsagents are also available...........................

The subject of overseas availability came up on the ELP forum Mrs One runs and she had a look into this and her answer there is:

The fine print says that for a single issue (non-subscription) from non-UK or non-EU, they only accept telephone order: +44 (0) 1604 251 045

It IS quite unhinged though so be prepared for a challenge or two... ;)
