Henry Cow Box with Orckestra

6 posts in this topic

I read at Wikipedia, that a Henry Cow Box does exist with a Bonus CD of Orckestra (a merge of Henry Cow, Mike Westbrook Band and Frankie Armstrong)

But i can find only Henry Cow Boxes without that Bonus CD. Does anybody of you know, how or where to get the box WITH this Bonus CD???

Thank you so much!.

I believe the bonus CD was only sent to people who preordered the box when it was released. In any case, I think it was a single CD, with only about 12 minutes of music.

It's a great bonus cd! You could ask recommended if there are any left. I did and they sent me one.

The box is superb. Well worth getting - all previously unissued apart from a couple of discs that came out in advance.
