It can be bought by mail order from Ozit Morpheus Records, PO Box 116, Northwich, Cheshire, CW9 5UG for BP6.99 including post and packing to UK addresses.
(Ozit Morpheus Records is operated by Recordcore Deeply Vale Recordrange)
Frankie Connor, who wrote the songs on the CD and holds the copyright, has given me permission to make the title track available in RealAudio. To hear it, click here.
