After 'Beyond the Pale' published our Francis Monkman / Procol Harum interview, Francis mailed us a very nice thank-you message, saying he was intending to use some of our comments about his wondrous 21st Century Blues ('a wall-to-wall work-out for viscera, cerebellum and psyche') in forthcoming publicity for the album.
But that wasn't all!
In a very generous gesture of solidarity with the online Procol community, he would like to extend this special offer: anyone buying 21st Century Blues direct from him in the next couple of weeks (i.e. before June 12) need send only 7 pounds 50 pence all-in, and Francis will take care of postage, VAT and all the rest.
That's approximately half the street price. Needless to say, there's a catch ...
To qualify for this fab offer you must mention 'Beyond the Pale' in your message ...
Over to the Palers, then. It's not every day you get the chance to be nice to your ears and to your bank account at the same time!
"Just order direct to the address at my site (PO Box 20647, London NW6 1FF UK), and by all means drop me an e-mail as well: you might get it sooner!"
Thanks Francis again!
