June 2004 - ALAB Eddie Hardin's Autobiography now available! Signed copies available through his website!
In 1985, Eddie Hardin and Zak Starkey released their LP Wind In The Willows, based Kenneth Grahame's book of the same name. There had been talk of staging a live production in London around the time of its release, but it did not happen. What DID take place six years later, was a live presentation done for German Television, featuring another all-star cast of British musicians.
The event took place in June 1991, at the Zeitfestival Freiburg, Germany. The musicians for the evening were Eddie Hardin, Jon Lord, Pete York, Ray Fenwick, Don Airey, Zak Starkey, Steve Richardson, Raf Ravenscroft, with special guests Graham Bonnet, Maggie Bell, Donovan, Tony Ashton, Joe Fagin and Val McKenna.
The show was broadcast on German television, and the audio portions later
released on CD. It is chock full of Deep Purple affiliates (one mail-order
outfit listed it as a Jon Lord solo CD!) and has been described as being
much like "Butterfly Ball" and The Wizard's Convention stuff.
This has been released a number of times, with slight variations.
