Hi Rik,
        wish I could have made it - but had to put some time into getting
ready for the start of the new school term; have to be there this afternoon!

        The launch party was brilliant - well worth the drive from
Darlington and back - please pass my thanks on to all concerned.  Definitely
looking forward to the release of the album.
