More Info:

This project was co-ordinated by Ashley Franklin of BBC Radio Derby's Soundscapes (Mojo and the Wire both highlight his show). His 15 year old daughter Claire, has Downs Syndrome and she attends Parkwood School, Alfreton in Derbyshire. Whilst the family were on hoilday, Claire, whilst gazing out of a car window said "the sky goes all the way home..." Because of her condition, Claire's sentences are few and far between. This extraordinarily poetic phrase inspired Ashley to contact hundreds of musicians in order to compile an album. All profits from this release will go to Parkwood School (to raise funds for their minibus) and the Downs Syndrome Association, whose director has written some of the sleeve notes. Ashley has compiled a 35 track double CD, which will retail for the price of a normal compact disc. There are 35 tracks, 25 tracks are exclusive to this release and the running time is over 2 and a half hours.
