Cuneiform released a package with a reissue of Curlew´s album "A Beautiful Western Saddle" (1993) and the DVD "The Hardwood", being a recorded concert from The Knitting Factory in 1991.
Curlew is here: George Cartwright, Tom Cora, Ann Rupel, Davey Williams and Pippin Barnett.

"A Beautiful Western Saddle" is music set to poems by Paul Haines (who we have mentioned earlier, him being Emily Haines´dad), and the reason I noticed this release (even if Curlew is a band that has passed below my radar), is that one of the songs/poems is dedicated to Robert Wyatt ("What is Free to a Good Home?").
