Well, here’s a surprise for you, and for me too. I didn’t think I’d record again but Wendy wouldn’t let it lie so I contacted my friend Bruce Davies in Scotland and asked if he would be willing to co-operate on a new CD.
We communicated via the internet with Bruce sending me his ideas and arrangements, and I was very quickly committed to the project because of the quality of his work.
Recorded at Red Barn Studios near Dundee, utilising the skills of some very fine musicians, I was able to relax and concentrate on my vocals and the whole week was a real pleasure.
So, here is Encore, 13 previously unrecorded compositions of mine plus one of my favourite David Mallet songs.
As I’m not gigging round the country anymore you can only buy this from my website. All copies will be signed. I hate to mention the coming December festivities, but the CD is just the right size for a stocking!
So, I sit surrounded by boxes, envelopes and stamps awaiting your orders. Wendy waits to see if her persistence is rewarded. Go on! You know you want to!
