This tape was from Martin Lilleker's collection which, with permission of the artists, is being released on STA, with proceeds from the sale to be donated to the Woodland View dementia support group (this is why this release, unlike most on STA has a minimum donation for download).

Martin was a music journalist for The Sheffield Star and Telegraph and author of books documenting the Sheffield music scene from the 60s to 80s. He was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease at the young age of 57 and after several years living at home, needed the support and expertise of staff at Woodland View Nursing Home to maintain his quality of life. While at Woodland View Martin enjoyed the surroundings, the wildlife, walking in the gardens, but most of all, listening, singing and dancing to music whist encouraging others to join in. In his memory we wish to support a project to deliver meaningful music to residents at Woodland View, tailored to both individual needs in one to one or group sessions, but also to provide music in general to promote a relaxing and therapeutic environment for all residents and staff. As music was such a large part of Martin's life and passion, this is a fitting legacy and thank you to all those who cared for him. Thanks to all bands who have allowed inclusion of their music, Martin's family and also Simon Dell for getting the project off the ground.
