HENRY COW with friends and family
A (almost) chronological overview of the numerous collaborations of ex-Henry Cow (& Slapp Happy) members, as well as some very rare Henry Cow projects with their friends. All the music presented here was professionnally recorded. and is taken from hard-to-find releases – mostly vinyls not reissued on CD and out of print compilations – or from the artist's collections.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is an aupdated and augmented version of one of my previous upload (no longer available). Here you have 4 CDs instaed of 3, more rarities, and better versions compared to what I previously posted a while ago.

A very detailed booklet (pdf format) is also included, with full credits and images for each track.
