But listed here which Jack Turner informs me is a ticket broker's site!  Be warned!!:
(thanks to Roberto Durantini from Italy for directing me to this)  ...SO it is still not definite! 

29th July comment:
Not on the Garden's web site yet so I think its doubtful.  Note change in dates to what I was originally advised.  23rd is already booked.

Great new poster repro from Bob Masse & the original psychedelic photographer of the Cream - Karl Ferris
Accurate - not like some "created"  repros
Tom Dowd

I meant to do this and it slipped by, now corrected thanks to Don Green's urging.  I can't believe how many of my favourite jazz CDs he recorded - superb sound even after 40 years

  More on the amps underway - valves, transformers, long cables etc 
I try to keep it simple but it ain't easy

Loud & Louder - The Amp Thing

I've been working on this for a while - this is version three and much simplified.  It was turning into a website of its own. Lots more to follow.

Cream: Strange Brew
released on DVD
6th April 2003  

Sorry TWTD regulars I've been busy - house renovations are hell.  Work has been busy and I've been seduced by Home Cinema - already  got two DVD players (inexpensive Chinese ones but quite OK to my eyes and ears) and a lovely 80cm TV (an expensive Sony Wega and well worth the money) and I've co-opted our old 68cm to watch music DVDs through my big stereo - love 'em. I'll have to write up my experiences as there are a lot of myths being spread about DVD surround sound (anything goes when making money)

  The Drumkit(s)
Updated courtesy of Ginger Baker via Chip Stern - Chip was wrong - the Hi-Hats were 15"

BBC Recordings Released.
Nothing really exciting as more material has been available on bootlegs for decades.  A new, very short, Crossroads is included.  I have been advised by Bob Elliott that the sound is marred by excessive digital filtering and he considers it inferior to the available digitally remastered bootleg - review at some stage.
