JEFF BUCKLEY SHOW FOR "GRACE"'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
On May 29th, 1997, the world lost one of its brightest and most promising music stars, Jeff Buckley. Wall Of Sound Gallery will celebrate his unique talent on the 20th anniversary of his legendary Grace album with an awesome selection of images (some of which never shown before) by Merri Cyr, the only photographer who had total access to Buckley since day one. Merri shot several of Buckley's historic record covers, including Live at Sin-é, Grace and Sketches for my Swetheart The Drunk. The show is pencilled in for September 14 and will be accompanied by a beautiful catalogue. We'll keep you posted soon, but you can already enquire re prints availablity.

Kate Bush fans all over the world are in deep shock as the elusive artist just announced out of the blue that she will take to the stage again. 35 years since her 1979 "Tour Of Life", Kate Bush will perform a series of 15 concerts at London's Eventim Apollo, titled "Before The Dawn". Tickets are expected to sell out in a second. Guido Harari has collaborated closely with Kate between 1982 and 1993, shooting her official press & promo sessions for albums like Hounds Of Love, The Sensual World and The Red Shoes. He was also summoned by Kate on the set of her film The Line, The Cross & The Curve. Some of these photographs ended up on the cover of records like Rubberband Girl and Moments Of Pleasure, as well as in the booklet of the This Woman's Work box set. Enjoy this image by Guido from 1985.
GOODBYE TO BANCO'S FRANCESCO DI GIACOMO.
We're deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Francesco Di Giacomo, unforgotten vocalist of Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, one of Italy's leading prog bands from the Seventies. This photograph by Cesare Monti is culled from the shoot for the band's historic debut album, known as "Salvadanaio" ("Money-safe") for its money-safe shaped album cover. Like all of Cesare Monti's images, it is available as a fine art signed/numbered print.

Other Peter Gabriel's images by Guido have also been featured in the So 25th Anniversay box set and on the Live in Athens 1987 DVD cover.
