EARTHED (2005 reissue)

Steve Kilbey - Earthed (2005 reissue) Cover

"Steve Kilbey's second solo album, a musical companion to his first book of poetry by the same name. 20 instrumental tracks, covering many moods but invoking a magical time and place through their dreamy melodies and atmospheric treatments. Now with 25 minutes of SK reading from his book. Let yourself be carried off into another realm by SK's velvet voice, giving a further link from the music to the book.... Includes eight newly found tracks of Steve Kilbey reading from the book Earthed, which are simply stunning. All music digitally remastered from original source material. All new packaging." - Karmic Hit Web Site
