    WOW ARTWORK
    One of Steve's happiest days was when Daniel Smith presented him with the original painting of the "Wow to the Deadness" album cover, which now hangs proudly in his home. If you've ever wanted to own an original Daniel Smith piece of art, Daniel's generously agreed to let us offer a very limited edition of signed and numbered “Wow to the Deadness” Giclée prints, sized 24"X24" (like the original). Only 50 of these will be made.
