Songstore – CDs


Although James is moving across to a purely digital format, there are still a few copies of his first CD On the Way available; on which he plays and sings primarily cover songs that have had a special meaning or influence in his life. It includes a small explanatory leaflet. It’s really a „last chance“, as the songs won’t be individually available and there is no intention to produce more of this CD.

The songs from his CD Off to Brighton are offered individually for free download from this site. But if you prefer the CD, it is available here and includes a booklet with songtexts.

Please note, CDs are offered on a „pay-what-you-like“ basis, with a minimum charge of €5 to cover the basics. In the basket, please don’t forget to fill in the shipping options to „Europe“ or „Rest of the World“, depending on the address to be shipped to.
