  • Watched by a burgeoning crowd of eager fans and inquisitive bystanders, Brown spent the day taking the band on a tour of some of his old stomping grounds, starting on the Aytoun tramlines in the city centre and ending in the "wastelands" by Prince's Bridge on the edge of Salford.

  • Where 'The World Is Yours' was led by the anti-war single 'Illegal Attacks', 'My Way' sees Brown moving from social commentary to the personal, drawing deep from his own experiences to create his most intensely emotional record in years. Pic: Steve Baker

  • When Brown bumped into that album’s producer, John Leckie, in the studio corridors for the first time in two decades, it proved the catalyst for what could turn out to be another landmark record, but this time one that spans the length and breadth of Brown’s extraordinary life.
