    'Tangles' is taken from the Yorkston A. Jaycock disc from the 'I Was A Cat From A Book'Box Set.

    This song was given away to people who pre-ordered the Box Set. Further songs will be given to people who pre-order the box set in the lead up to release.

    Full details & to pre-order go here:

    "When I toured with David A Jaycock in 2009, Tangles was the song of his which I found myself singing along with, waiting for in the set, practising at home. It made sense for me to cover it here, although even then I couldn't get the guitar part right so he did it for me. It's a rare trip into the major key for David, reminds me of Cheating The Game a wee bit in that sense. A pair o' fine old songs."

    With this album Cornish hermit and Underground Psychedelic freak-ball David A Jaycock has bridged the 4 yr gap between James' last two albums; he's taken James' collaborations, film soundtracks, radio sessions & guest appearances, alongside the demos for this very album - and remixed and re produced them for this very special bonus disc. Dave is a much loved figure on the outsider music circuit and his collision with James' pop styling has made a beautiful fruity woozy album, full of beautiful woozy fruit.

    David says “I like finger picking, sleeping, fishing, digging, cider making and wood cutting. I am interested in analog sythesisers and acoustic guitars. I make my living building dry stone walls, rough shod plastering and repairing the gear boxes of pre-1970 Massey tractors”
