On Monday 27 September Paul Kelly is set to release his self-described 'mongrel memoir', the result of two years work and many more years of songwriting. Over four nights in 2004, Paul performed one hundred of his songs in alphabetical order. From the little stories he told in between songs grew How To Make Gravy – a memoir like no other.
THE SONGS: THE A TO Z RECORDINGS (8CD Box Set)
Housed in deluxe hardback style packaging, the A-Z Recordings spans 105 songs, 8 CDs and takes the listener on a journey. The accompanying 64 page, full colour booklet features images and memorabilia from Paul's 30+ year career.
THE STORY: HOW TO MAKE GRAVY (Paul's 576 Page Memoir)
How To Make Gravy's four sections mirror the four nights of the A-Z shows. Each chapter starts with a song lyric followed by a story. Some stories tell Kelly's personal and family history, some take you on a road trip with the band, some form an idiosyncratic history of popular music, others offer insights into the songwriter's art – from the point of inspiration to writing, honing, collaborating, performing, recording and reworking.
SPECIAL EDITION: HOW TO MAKE GRAVY (Paul's 576 Page Memoir) + A TO Z RECORDINGS (8CD Box Set)
This special edition combines Paul's memoir ‘How To Make Gravy’ with the ‘A To Z Recordings’ CD box set in a hard slip case.
