Side A –

The Everything Thing (From the album ‘Here Be Dragons’)

 A cosmic country style take on our desire at times to do everything at once, which seems appropriate for these times, where we all desire to do at least some of the things we used to! But be patient….these things will return and won’t it be beautiful when they do!
Other Side A

Monsieur Shambolique Meets Master Misery

 Jim describes it: ‘A “new” song, just recently completed under lockdown! Recorded at home – just me and my geetar!
It tells the saga of when a free spirit meets a closed mind!
I’ve never written such a long song before but hey, we’ve all got more time on our hands right now!
So I’d love it if you listened to this tale and see what happened when Monsieur Shambolique met Master Misery!’

Warren Starry Sky – Fox Star Records:

‘In his uniquely wry way, Jim ponders how to make the best of the time that we have on Earth. And with a top-notch band in tow, it turns into an existentialist Cosmic Country party, like Bill Callahan fronting Sweetheart of the Rodeo era Byrds

Accompanying ‘The Everything Thing’ is a new song, ‘Monsieur Shambolique Meets Master Misery’. When we say new song… we mean a song that Jim has been writing for many years and finally finished under lockdown.
It may be his masterpiece! A formidable ten minutes of intricately rhymed storytelling, an allegory of the human spirit’s determination to create and be free.’ Warren McIntyre – Fox Star Records ‘
Big thanks to Johnny Smillie for mastering the new track.

Jim’s  single has already had a fair amount of radio play in the week before release and he has loads of interviews to look out for coming up soon.
