So this edition features all of The Wild Swans' recordings for Occultation, 2007-2013.

These'll be incredibly special and we've only been able to produce a very limited quantity of these as they're expensive and a huge amount of work to make. Most of these have now gone to people who signed up for them earlier in the year, but Occultation still have a dozen or so left.

They will be taking orders for the "Deluxe" and "Standard" versions soon. If you'd like one of these last few copies it's first-come, first-served, and they can be obtained by ordering the Occultation website at www.occultation.co.uk
