Good to see Living In Extraordinary Times in XSNoise's Best Albums of 2018 feature: “Living proof that a band’s best work isn’t always from their younger days. Somehow, James just keeps on hitting the targets and confounding expectations.”

BBC Sport checked in with our Jim to get his predictions for Boxing Day fixtures ⚽️🎄🎁 and chat Manchester City. “Glennie is enjoying life under Pep Guardiola—not just City’s success, but the way they have achieved it. ‘It’s absolutely fantastic," he told BBC Sport. ‘I’m getting to as many games as I can. First, because it is lovely to see us winning games for a change, but also because of the quality of the football. Regardless of it being City, it’s just stunning. It is so entertaining to watch.’"

Do my eyes deceive me or is the 16-track Deluxe CD down to £8 today? Was £15 so this is excellent. Not sure how long it'll stay there, if you fancy treating yourself or giving Father Xmas a helping hand, sooner may be wiser than later.😉 Lovely version this, in a hardback book sleeve with the lyrics plus the extra tracks. Nice pressie!

“The band released earlier this year one of their finest albums of their career to date. The band never seem to stand still or rest on their laurels and are always pushing the boundaries. No gimmicks, no fancy trimmings just the band and the music and the rapport the group have with their audience. Come Home? James did it with good northern style. ”—Yorkshire Times

“Booth has the crowd in the palm of his hand. It's a tricky feat to pull off playing the newly released songs alongside such old favourites, but the Living in Extraordinary Times songs hold their own and the audience filter out filled with euphoria.”⭐⭐⭐⭐ — Manchester Evening News
