Unthinkable Skies - the musical



On Wednesday, I picked up a sample copy of the CD of poetry from my chapbook Unthinkable Skies with music from Belvedere Mountain Express. It looks pretty good, doesn't it? The cover photo is the same as was used for the cover of the book and currently also features in the header of this blog, although it's a different detail of the photo in each case. It was taken in Caerlaverock in Dumfries and Galloway. You can see the original photo in this post. Howard of Belveder Mountain Express has done a great job in recording and mixing the CD (as well as composing and playing the music) and in designing and making the packaging (which includes the words to all the featured poems along with photos I've taken. The CD will be available from Monday 20 June from CD Baby, probably only as a download.




Meanwhile you can still buy Unthinkable Skies, the chapbook here.

Plus, I've had a couple of poems published recently:

And thank you for the discovery of the artist : it is very nice to listen, from what I tried on the web (I'm going to try find more of his music later...)

Hi there - the world works in strange ways sometimes - I had never come across the term chapbook before and now I've read it twice in one day! Firstly in reference to the books that wives of Tudor landowners may have owned (and I admit that's an obscure reference!) and now on your blog!
