Leader of the Starry Skies – ‘Songbook 1‘ and ‘A Loyal Companion‘ are both compilations of Tim Smith compositions* each track covered by friends and admirers now released to raise funds and awareness of his plight.
Its been nearly 3 years since Tim’s ‘night out’ ended up in tragic circumstances and following a concussion of stroke related consequences remains bed bound and in need of specialist care for the foreseeable. Lets hope the cash raised by the sale of these ‘songbooks’ will go some way toward the support he will need for health and home in the future. Cardiacs are on hold indefinitely with ABC just ticking over at best.. still reeling. Lets hope Tim is well enough to get home soon!
Great to see some attention being paid to these releases with further compilations to follow as contributions are still being made. It would be great to see more press attention with so many great tracks and such a fantastic effort form all concerned to get it together.
