A big thank you also goes to Steve lacy who was kind enough to share with us his this scan of the back of his copy of "Two Days In Winter" signed by Kuma Harada, Jonathan, Dave Sheen, & Chas Jankel These are the only copies of these autographs I have ever seen, so it's a rarity

My deepest gratitude to Tim Booth for sharing these pieces of rare memorabilia with me, without the help of people such as Tim and many fans who help find rarities I could never have included half of the information on this site.
