Will be hard to resist listening , even with the knowledge that doing so will take away some of the excitement of receiving the new cd :?

No UK streaming? That's a shame, but I shouldn't be too hard to trick the internet into thinking i'm in Belgium. Excited to hear it, I'm sure it will be great.

It does not matter where you live in Europe (I don't know if it would work also from other parts of the world, please make a test on 15th).
Just click on the link http://smarturl.it/PopularProblemsStrm, and you will hear a stream. The source is up to your location=IP address.
If no local stream, you will be served from USA.

This link works perfectly in Australia, Jarkko :D Thank you ilia!!
On first listening Samson In New Orleans grabs my attention greatly.....plus I l-o-v-e Alex's violin!
I'm up to the fourth one now.

Did I Ever Love You has a great beat and there's that violin again :)
You Got Me Singing is a great song to finish on!.....and Alex :D

...don't want to say too much in case it spoils it for anyone.

Nevermind is the major standout to these ears. Early days but a modern classic perhaps?

I enjoyed it, just gave it a listen while at work. Few tracks might take time to grow but that was the case with the last one for me also.

Thank you ilia, your link worked in my country. I have just listened to the songs. Wonderful! Good music, great lyrics, fine
arrangements and orchestrations - and the sublime Webb Sisters. Some songs gave me goose bumps. Leonard's voice has
become still more "raspy".
