MEDIA SECTION and online store facelift!

It is the media section that has received the biggest facelift, though - with the addition of rare audio material, including the very first Medicine Head BBC session, recorded for John Peel in 1970 BEFORE the release of their debut album!

Leilah Safka - John Fiddler duet!

Highslide JS (August 2009) Leilah Safka is the daughter of world renowned sixties singer, Melanie. Leilah has been singing and touring with Melanie for the past several years, but she's also released a few solo albums. Her 2006 effort was called "Country Duetts" and included her version of "One And One Is One", featuring John Fiddler on vocals! Explains John: "I actually never met Leilah. I only learned about her version last year. I recorded vocals for several Medicine Head songs a few years ago for a German company. I guess it's possible more may surface in time!!" "Country Duetts" is available as a digital download from CDBaby among others.
