Hi, I discovered your blog few days ago. It's so amazing that you have put so many records that I love, loved or been looking for many many years, like this one. I don't know if you care but you really made my day. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!

Thank you so very much for this post! I´ve been looking for this album for like years :) You reallty made my day :)

Also I´m looking for Mick Softley: Capital... There is a version posted here which is to be found at Rapidshare but it´s the entire record in one single file. I know there is another one at Soulseek which is in much better quality... I found it a while back but was not able to get more than one or two songs since user went offline... Anyone know of this one? It sounds almost like it was ripped from a cd, really well done! Anyone who have it? Please upload :)

Thank you! The last time this one appeared on eBay, it was going for around US$100, and apparently Roy has no plans to reissue it.

To Chrille: Mick Softley's first album has been reissued on CD by Hux Records, and his 2nd and 3rd albums (both featuring members of Fotheringay) together on one CD by BGO Records. Both CDs are still available at Amazon UK. However his later albums, "Any Mother Doesn't Grumble", "Capital" and "Mensa" all seem hard to find.

There is an undated interview with Mick at http://www.polenta.dircon.co.uk/softly.html that may interest you.

Bless you! This was the single item in Roy's Discography I don't own, and I've been kicking myself for years that I didn't get it when it was available. I always thought I would order it later, and when later came I couldn't order it anymore. Dagnabit!

Yes I know about the cd-releases and I have all of his records now except for the last one Mensa... I will have a look at the interview now, thanks for telling me, didn´t know about its existance.

Best Wishes!

hey you all Roy's loonies I have something that you all might be interested in. It a promo version of the Dream Society album with commentaries on every track by the master himself. I'd be so glad to share it with you all, but I don't know how to do it, if you are interested e-mail me at property_john@wp.pl with some solution :)
