The new collection of poems by Harold Budd, Angel, is almost ready. Got the trial slipcase from Adele Shaak yesterday: looks good. The signed colophons from Harold will arrive any minute. Copies are collated & pressing. All that remains to be done is to make the paste paper wraps. Copies should be ready for shipping before the end of the month.
The edition is so small in part because we had enough of the Barcham Green paper for just 26 copies (plus a couple of proofs), and not all 26 will be offered for sale. Probably only about 20. So, those interested should get in touch. A bit more info is available on the book's page at the HM site.
For those in, or able to get to North Carolina on October 27, Harold will be performing with MoonLiner's Keith Lowe (bass) at this year's Moogfest. Their set is billed as "These Old Love Songs," a selection of works from Harold's career. If we can get a set list, we'll post it. Be interesting to know which of his songs he'd include under that heading. (One could argue all of them, so who knows.)
