We had expected to enjoy Ginger Wildheart's in-store but it's true to say that the man bowled us all over. Not only does he have an incredible voice and write great music but he's a truly lovely man.
The shop was jampacked with people who had taken the day off work and travelled from far and wide to meet him and Ginger made time for all of them. He turned up early to an almost full house and instead of sound checking got stuck straight into meeting his fans and signing the albums they were brandishing. He then dived straight into a faultless acoustic performance of gorgeous heartfelt songs that the crowd sang along to. Then without so much as a pause he went straight back to chatting to fans and signing albums. We've never had such a long queue of people waiting to meet an artist and Ginger spent so much time with each and every one of them (and all the Vinyl Revolution crew including Treacle the dog) that there was a danger that he was going to be late for his Sold Out night at the Prince Albert. The band dragged him out and he went down a storm at The Albert!
Thank you Ginger. We loved meeting you and hearing your new music. Come back and see us soon!
Here are some photos of the in-store (BIG thank you to Phil Karn - our No1 customer - for your photos!)

A queue for the second signing session!
And here is the link to a VIDEO - HUGE apologies for the fact that it was filmed vertically rather than horizontally (hopefully it will auto correct when you watch it). We live and learn!!!
