Robyn Hitchcock will
release concert film and live album I Often Dream of Trains in New York on November 10 on Yep Roc.

 

I Often Dream of Trains
in New York
was filmed live at
Symphony Space in New York City in the fall of
2008 during the U.S.
leg of Hitchcock’s highly anticipated I Often Dream of Trains Tour. Deftly shot
by acclaimed director John Edginton (The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story)
and originally aired on the Sundance Channel, this concert film DVD and
accompanying audio CD captures the cult songwriting icon recreating one of his
most intimate and haunting albums in its entirety.

 

Robyn is joined by Trains
tour mates Terry Edwards (vocals, keyboards, trumpet, soprano sax, guitar) and
Tim Keegan (vocals, guitar) as well as guests Gaida Hinnawi (vocals) and Amir
El Saffar (trumpet) from the Robyn-led band seen in Jonathan Demme’s film Rachel
Getting Married.

 

This release will also
receive the deluxe package treatment from Yep Roc in the form of a working phenakistoscope with artwork by Robyn. Further details here.
