The Return of Fly My Pretties: In Store Tuesday

LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa is pleased to announce the release of The Return of Fly My Pretties: A CD and DVD 'live-record' of the musical collaboration which was performed, filmed and recorded across eight unforgettable shows at The Paramount (Wellington) and Hopetoun Alpha (Auckland) in September and October 2005.

Building on last year's event, The Return of Fly My Pretties sees key members of the original cast reunite, and meet with new faces from the Wellington music scene. With the repertoire encompassing a diverse range of styles from folk-roots, to reggae, rock, new-soul, and blues, The Return of Fly My Pretties sees a wide range of musical influences converge in writing and performance to create something altogether unique and special. The tracks on the CD and DVD represent the best takes from the sell-out season, and have been un-altered so that the listener gets the chance to relive the magic of the performances.
