As an exclusive, limited edition for that chain of stores, a bonus CD was included featuring the track "Island Jam", that was available for download around Christmas-time from DavidGilmour.com, and at the time was otherwise unavailable. We have a sealed copy of this collectable to give away to one lucky Brain Damage visitor!

The 2CD package sold out very quickly, with a few appearing on eBay subsequently. However, even these are few and far between now. To win your very own copy, you had to answer the following questions correctly:

  1. What is the name of the Polish composer who does the orchestrations on the album?

  2. Name the musicians on the album, who have also been members of Pink Floyd.

  3. What is Castellorizon?

and then email your answers, together with your postal address, to: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by 11:59pm (UK time) on July 31st. One lucky person was be picked, at random. Please note that no correspondence will be entered into, and that the competition mailbox is unmonitored - entries were checked on August 1st and the winner announced shortly after.
