Special Collector's Edition of only 100, with a specially recorded 'Gimme Some Wine' EP by Eleanor McEvoy inside, only 100 signed and numbered by her, produced only for the exhibition, and with four of her songs. It features a very special acoustic version of her song ‘Gimme Some Wine’, which was inspired by Gollon’s painting ‘Dreaming of Leaving’, which in turn was inspired by the song Eleanor co-wrote with Lloyd Cole. She wrote ‘Gimme Some Wine’ in response to Chris’s work and dedicated the song to him. He in turn was then inspired by it to paint the 2017 ‘Gimme Some Wine’ series of paintings, the last of which (reproduced on the CD) is in both the exhibition and catalogue. The other 3 tracks ‘Heaven Help Us’, ‘The Thought of You’ and ‘Look Like Me’ are from her album NAKED MUSIC, which was also a collaboration with Chris Gollon.
