The replugged official bootleg of Jim Jam Live
On www.jimleamusic.com you can now download the ”Jim Lea Replugged Official Bootleg of Jim Jam Live At The Robin 2 – November 4, 2002”. Apart from the slightly bizarre in having an ”official bootleg”, the download album is quite okay. Compared to the “unofficial” bootleg, the sound is a lot better, but on the other hand some of the tracks are missing, namely “Merry Xmas At The Robin”, “Get Down And Get With It” plus all of the 5 encores, which is a bloody shame. It also seems a bit odd, that the date of the concert is said to be Monday the 4th of November 2002, because as press and audience can confirm, the one-off concert didn’t take place until Saturday the 16th of November that year! Apart from that the “official bootleg” is a good (and legal!) alternative to the unofficial one.
If you want to know more about the tracks and the concert, you can read my old reviews here.

Don Powell recordings
Finally you can hear one of the tracks that came out of the studio-session between Don and Danish band The Guv’nors on January 7th this year. At the moment their version of ”Raining In My Champagne” can be found on www.myspace.com/theguvnors
I set up this deal between Don and the band and I was present when they recorded. The photo you can see on The Guv’nors myspace-site is mine and you can read a small account of what happened that day here.

Jim on My Space
Jim now has a profile on My Space at www.myspace.com/jameswhildlea. Here you can listen to ”Deadrock U.K.” and buy the album Therapy. ”Deadrock U.K” is a hit among fans, although in my opinion it is not the best track of the album. For UK-residents it is also possible to purchase the limited edition promo artwork of Therapy signed by Jim.
