Related Artist Profiles: Ashley Franklin


35 cross-genre EXCLUSIVES from a star-studded line-up of Artists & Bands on a fund-raising double album compiled by BBC Radio Derby DJ Ashley Franklin!

* Please hover your mouse / pointer over the sleeve image above to see a picture Ashley with Claire, the inspiration behind this 2CD set. *

* See ASHLEY FRANKLIN’s profile page for a historical description of ‘The Sky Goes All The Way Home’ and the full story behind its conception by clicking on the “Related Artist Profiles” link above *

Originally issued in 1999, this charity album was released in aid of Parkwood School in Derbyshire – where Claire was a pupil at the time – and the Down’s Syndrome Association.
This limited stock discovery comes with many still UNRELEASED TRACKS and a 32-Page Booklet with extensive sleeve notes, including text donated by a few of the artists involved, plus passages written about the cause.

A real MUST HAVE for collectors of the artists involved, ‘The Sky Goes All The Way Home’ may well have one of the longest running times for a Double CD produced back then, because it notches up a staggering 157 Minutes Playing Time and features 35 ALL EXCLUSIVE TRACKS (in 1999) played by artists from several music genres.
It's all great music too - a mixture of songs and instrumentals that will give many hours of listening pleasure.

Here are just a few of the big names that supplied EXCLUSIVE tracks for the set: Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Peter Hammill, Gordon Giltrap, Andy Pickford, Asana, Bekki Williams, Michael Neil, Kevin Coyne, Roy Harper and Anthony Phillips. If all that wasn't enough, you'll find a real grandiose piece from The ENID, a superb track by the brilliant Irish duo CELTUS, two tracks from the king of keyboards Rick Wakeman and haunting music from the electronic project: IN THE NURSERY. With a line-up like this and the quality of music on offer, you simply cannot go wrong. Just over two and a half hours of fantastic music!
