The new limited edition, fully illustrated hardback coffee table book by Simon Fowler. Collaborating with his lifelong friend, award-winning author, Daniel Rachel, One For The Road is presented as an extended conversation featuring 69 personally hand-selected songs by Simon, including never seen before original handwritten lyrics, 13 unreleased songs, and over 350 hand chosen photographs and rarely seen items of memorabilia. With introductions by both Oscar Harrison and Steve Cradock, of Ocean Colour Scene, this new stunning book offers a unique and illuminating visual record of one of the great songwriters.
The ‘Hundred Mile High City’ Package comes with a 288 full colour page signed book printed on high quality stock with a sewn hard back cover and wraparound dust jacket. A strictly limited edition seven inch single hand stamped, numbered and pressed for One For The Road featuring two never heard before tracks. A facsimile of the lyrics ‘One For The Road’ handwritten by Simon over two sheets of white A4 paper. Two previously unreleased photographic colour prints of Simon and Ocean Colour Scene. An exclusive black tote bag. And a free ticket to the ‘One For The Road’ launch night (TBC December 2022) in London featuring a Q&A with Daniel Rachael and Simon and a short acoustic set. The two songs on the record – ‘The American Way Of Life’ and ‘I’ were only recently discovered and were recorded by Simon into a portable cassette recorder in 1986. They offer a rare glimpse into Simon’s voice and songwriting when he was only twenty-one years old. Of special note is the track ‘I’ which was later re-written as ‘Foxy’s Folk Faced’ and featured on Ocean Colour Scene’s number one album Marchin’ Already. Only 500 copies of this highly rare recording will be pressed to vinyl.
