Browsing Amazon, I noticed not one, not two, but three 2022 calendars for sale. The underlying information is almost identical and is written in dodgy English. Clearly unofficial, so not sure about the quality.

Far more interestingly, is the prospect of a Lyrics book in May 2022. Amongst the Amazon blurb it says:
"Lyrics collects the words written for music across seventeen albums, from the first iconic Roxy album of 1972 via the masterpiece of Avalon to 2014's Avonmore, introduced by the author, with an insightful essay by James Truman."

Whether BF is the 'author' seems rather ambiguous - one to watch...

James Truman was involved in an interesting 'booklet' around the time of Boys and Girls - it was an interesting and insightful publication - the cover was silvery in colour if my memory serves me right - I had one then .. but now it's lost .

However ....I was listening to Paul McCartney talking us through his lyrics on Radio Four and came to the conclusion that lyrics only fully create their magic when sung and in the context of the music ....

On another forum [ Twitter ] , I saw a copy of Stranded with a lyric sheet included. Rather than a lyrics book, I feel an autobiography would be more welcome in these hallowed grounds.I’d dearly love to know how he got Stranded and These Foolish Things out in short order after For Your Pleasure. For the song writing and musical creativity.
