This was released in the UK under the title 31 songs - and there was an 18 track album released from the book - and that was my introduction to Ben - good ol' Nick H!!

The opening bars of Landed - just the piano - actually the strings version gets me everytime too.

Got my renewal pack - no original signatures - kinda ok pictures and placcy card - worth $35?  Heck no.  Still I am enjoying seeing all those lovely pre sales for US tour.  Makes it all worth while somehow. Come back to the UK soon Ben!!

Nice one Andy - glad I hadn't done the "talk to guys in US with cap in hand" thing yet.

Dime is down - oh no - and I was actually getting excited about getting home and downloading.  Oh well patience needed.  Oh and if you keep trying to sign up at Dime then it refreshes every 10 minutes - if you look at the last refresh time and try to login exactly 10 minutes later you can usually manage.

Depite a year of disappointment I signed up again - the emails at least are very nice - you are supporting your artist etc etc.  Not sure about getting a pony - the shipping takes a long time from the US...........

Worked for me - brilliant - takes me back already - thanks for sharing.  Keeping an eye on Dime for Funky's torrent too.  Well done for all the work you guys do to keep the gig alive in the memory.  I got suckered by security when recording Kate on my camera - they just shine a torch down the camera until you stop!! Shame it was coming out well too......

sod Wossy - he would have upstaged Ben anyway.  The sound was fab in the "Mosh".  Too many tall people at the front however.  Really cool to stand next to a bunch of fans who knew all the words to everything.  Ben is the best.  My only gripe is that I saw Deacon Blue at the Hammersmith Apollo last year and you could buy the gig on CD - you order before and pick up 10 mins after - how awesome would that have been? :-(

I might be wrong here but I think the drummer was one of Ben's roadies - a fantastic piece of not drumming in time with the track (watch the cymbals and listen for the sounds!!) ;-)

The whole thing was a big mickey take on miming if you ask me - inspired!! :-)

Trouble with festivals is you don't get the full set - we wannanother uk tour.

Saw that Simply Red are playing Warwick Castle - can you imagine Ben performing at a venue like that - it would be so cool.

Dreaming :'(

Like "they give no f***, they talk as loud as they want...."  so they don't hear the songs...... \m/

Sorry just occurred to me....

Deano - that was awesome - sounded like a great routine.  Well observed and says it all for us that suffer!   ;D
