Limited Copies Available…..


50 E.P’s were created for sale at the 2nd Annual Al Purdy Picnic, which was held at his A-Frame home. Inside were 5 poems regarding Purdy and 1 personal note about the influences he held for Martin.

The show was humbling, exciting, and a major success for all involved.

At the end of the show, 4 copies are all that survived, including 5 which owner David Sweet of Books & Company in Picton Ontario; has available at his store – signed.

If you are interested in grabbing up one of the last copies remaining and live in the Quinte area, please head to Books & Company. They also have copies of Martin’s latest book, SteelTown for Mary, Memoirs from a Dick.

The trouble with you Al...

If you purchase a copy of SteelTown for Mary ($23 includes shipping), Memoirs from a Dick; through or through CrazyIrishman here, you will receive a FREE copy of the e.p while supplies last as a thankyou.

If you were at the show and already have a copy, Martin sends his heartfelt thanks!

Until next time…….
