  • Hand-signed Limited Edition LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Sorting out the JIB warehouse last week we found an extra 14 copies of our critically acclaimed debut LP release, The Ray Russell Quartet’s Spontaneous Event, that Ray had signed. The reason they had remained in the warehouse was due to the fact that they all had minor warps, but we’ve now checked them, and they all play fine. Having discussed it with Ray, we’ve decided to offer these final 14 copies with all of the proceeds going to Ray and his wife Sally’s chosen charity - www.warpaws.org - an organisation dedicated to alleviating pain and suffering of animals in hostile environments and areas of civil conflict. We think this is a very worthy cause. These are the ONLY SIGNED COPIES of the album, and there is no other stock beyond this last 14. Due to the fact that they are slight defects, we will not be accepting returns on these copies so be sure you want one before purchasing.
