New Album/New Guitar

Hello to all.

I have been well slack regarding updating the website..there is so much news.

First of all, the new album “More Than Words”  is being organised as I write. The Cd cover is being designed this week, and all being well I will begin manufacture early March 2010 for an April release..in time for my 50th  birthday.

This album has taken a really long time get right, and I have had lots of help from some friends in getting this far.

Some old friends include Charles Spicer (Cor Anglais & Oboe),and Rob Bartholomew (Soprano & Tenor Sax)..we all had the dubious pleasure (?) of playing in a series of very dodgy bands together so were our friendships forged. Also Maninderpal Singh on tabla, we have played all round the country together but never recorded.

I also got a chance to play my baritone guitar on a track (“It’s Still Raining”),and it sounds great a real credit to Dave White (De Faoite Guitars).

I am expecting a real corker of a guitar in time for my birthday (see above), the maker (Dennis Leahy) has christened the instrument “Angelina” and here she is complete with the most splendid buttocks !!!

I don’t really go for Gibson/Martin guitar variants I prefer something out of the ordinary..and I think “Angelina” qualifies.

The album will be on myspace soon. . here.
