Further to our recent news about the next release in the Pete Townshend 'signature' series, an expanded version of the Deep End show from November 2nd 1985, featuring Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, we have an update for you, courtesy of Eel Pie, Pete's record company.

An abbreviated version of the set was made available many years ago, but this new version promises the whole concert. As with the two sell out shows performed by the band at London's Brixton Academy, all profits from the sale of this release will go to the Double O Charity.

The double CD will be released exclusively through www.eelpie.com in the next few weeks. There have been some issues with the printing and artwork, which has delayed it, but we are assured that it should be available to order in the next couple of weeks. Our thanks to Suzanna at Eel Pie for her help. As and when we have more confirmed details, we will pass them on.

The band, featuring Townshend and Gilmour, also included John "Rabbit" Bundrick, Simon Phillips, Chucho Merchan, Peter Hope Evans and Jody Linscott as well as the Kick Horns, and anyone who remembers the show will recall what a tight unit they were, and what great shows they were. A couple of tracks from David's About Face album were performed, alongside Who classics, and Townshend solo pieces, chiefly from the White City project.
