“We’re going to just stick a spotlight on a turntable and hope that people will close their eyes and enjoy,” says Adrian McNally, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and husband of singer Rachel Unthank. “We want to make an event out of releasing a record that has taken two years to make, rekindling and celebrating the virtues of the album as a valid art form.

“The market climate tells us that recorded music is dead and something to give away to promote the real money earner of live performance, and rather than whinge about that, we want to hold a positive event that champions the value of recorded music as an art form in itself and promotes the somewhat forgotten notion of listening to music as a dedicated, enriching experience.”

    Please can you let me know how the winner will be notified. Will it be by Twitter? – I have only just joined to enter the competition and am not sure how it works. My Tweet has been ‘favourited’ and I don’t know if that means anything??

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    With kind regards
