The amount of profit generated from the sales of our latest CD ‘Golden Tracks’ has now exceeded £375. There are just 80 CDs remaining to be sold – so be sure to snap one up when you get the chance. All profit from these sales goes directly to the charity supported by EOTT.
The group will shortly need to make plans for their fifth recording session.
This week has seen the group perform four concerts in Devizes, Swindon, Bristol and Chippenham. Those performances have raised a total of £565 for our selected charity. In addition, we have sold 15 CDs with a total value of £90.
What a great start to our Christmas season of performances. Many thanks to all those who have supported us at those events this week.
The individual members of the group can be viewed in the following YouTube photo slideshow.

Here is the group’s rendition of the gospel song ‘Where Could I Go But To The Lord’ which is a traditional song arranged for the group as four-part harmony vocals by the Welsh conductor Alwyn Humphreys.
The song was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1967 and included on his album ‘How Great Thou Art’.
Thanks to the efforts of our tenor singer Nick Greene we have an entry on Youtube to advertise our latest album Golden Tracks.
The first track on the album ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow ‘s now available worldwide.
Whilst in the Malmesbury area today I dropped in at Athelstan House – a venue well known to our group although we have not been booked for a period of time.
I was greeted at reception by a man who recognised me, although I did have to explain the reason why he knew me! I emphasized how our group had been regular entertainment for the residents (since 2011) and was wondering why we had not been asked back since our last performance (12 months ago).
It appears that the activities co-ordinator Emily has left the care home, and presumably her replacement has no knowledge of our group. I gave the man one of our cards for him to pass on to the current activities co-ordinator – who is now on holiday.
I am sure this behaviour is common across many residential/care homes: the information regarding entertainment activities is kept by the co-ordinator and they take that information with them when they leave. The homes really should take more ownership of this valuable asset.
The latest album from End Of The Track is now available for sale to our fan base.
150 copies were received this morning from the supplier and went on sale at today’s performance in River House, Chippenham. Six copies were immediately snapped up by a section of the audience. The Elvis track ‘Where Could I Go But To The Lord’ seemed to generate a great deal of interest following its premier performance at the event. The music for this track was arranged for our group by Alwyn Humphreys – Conductor Emeritus for the Morriston Orpheus Choir.
The group have decided to maintain the same price for this album as for the previous one – £6.00. If anyone would like to purchase a copy of the album and cannot attend our upcoming performances then they can contact the group leader – contact details are available on our website (www.eott.co.uk).
The Spring 2017 issue of the publication ‘News & Views’ from the National Association Of Choirs contains an article written by Keith Clifford about the group. The article appears on page 22 and is headed by a photograph of the group.
