Roger McGuinn's ex-wife Dolores DeLeon (aka Ianthe McGuinn aka Ianthe Tickner aka Dolores Tickner), has just published a book titled

"In The Winds - My Life With Roger McGuinn And The Byrds"

Skip Battin's Italian LPs to be released on CD at last...with bonus live CD


From Italy (via our regular correspondent Jean-Pierre M.) comes the news that both Skip Battin LPs that were released in Italy only during the 80s will soon be released on one CD, along with a 1988 live concert featuring Skip Battin and John York, which was until now only available on a bootleg CDR.

The title of this new CD is "Skip Battin's Italian Dream" and the content will be as follows:

Skip Battin - Navigator (Appaloosa 1981)

Skip Battin - Don't Go Crazy (Appaloosa 1984)

Family Tree (Skip Battin and John York with Beppe D'Angelo and Ricky Mantoan) - Live In Bolzano 1988

The CD comes with a 14 page booklet with many never seen before pictures, and liner notes in Italian (except for a one-page tribute interview with Gene Parsons).
