Additional notes:

'Wonderful Land' is one of my all-time favourite instrumental tunes and this version is my homage to the amazing instrumental music of the 1960s, in particular the wonderful compositions of Jerry Lordan, made famous by The Shadows. I have tried to stay as true as possible to 'the sound of the 60s' but added my 2024 electronic touch... no strats... all synths. 'Wonderful Land' was recorded, mixed and mastered between 17 April and 3 June 2024.

Reviews: "Jim has brought 'Wonderful Land' into the 21st century while at the same time retaining the melodic soul of the piece.". John Holden, DJ at 2BACR (Sydney, Australia).
"Jim's version of 'Wonderful Land' just brought back that whole 60s vibe in spades.". Janet Mawdesley, Blue Wolf Reviews (Australia).
