Leon Rosselson Box Set

E-mail Print PDF
Thanks to everyone who helped with Leon Rosselson's final tour of Canada & the States: 5 weeks, 2 festivals, 15 concerts, 3 radio programmes, 1 record launch and not enough sleep.  
 
Leon Rosselson - The World Turned Upside Down
Those who were unable to buy the 4 CD Box Set on the tour, can buy it from PM Press. Click on https://secure.pmpress.org/index.php?l=product_detail&p=353
         
The 4 CDs in this box set contain 72 songs, covering 5 decades of songwriting, from the sparky sixties to the curdled present, and encompass a wide variety of song subjects and song forms. They have been written out of hope, anger, love, scorn, laughter and despair.  And because they have something to say about the times in which they were written, there is an 80 page booklet containing copious notes on the political and personal environments that formed them, along with some pointed observations on the craft of songwriting. 

Frankie Armstrong, Roy Bailey, Mark Bassey, Steve Berry, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Howard Evans, Clare Lintott, Chris Foster, Sue Harris, Paul Jayasinha,  John Kirkpatrick, Elizabeth Mansfield, Janet Russell, Ruth Rosselson, Fiz Shapur, Dave Swarbrick, Miranda Sykes, Roger Williams, The 3 City 4, The Oyster Band, and The Sheffield Socialist Choir all contribute.


The release date for the box set in the UK is 3rd October. It will be distributed by Proper Music Distribution Ltd. 
 
In the U.S.A. & Canada, this CD can be bought via the PM Press website
