Making predictions is almost always a bad idea. As a result, I've been rather airily saying "Yeah, I'm working on some new recordings" for about 17 years now. And here they are; only a little delayed.

The tunes on The Wind Horse were from quite a discrete phase of my life, written over 4 - 5 years and recorded over a (for me) short period of nine months. These tracks, by contrast, cover almost 17 years; some were recorded by Mark Atkins in 1995/6 during the same sessions as The Wind Horse, others I have done myself in the intervening years. Those were years that saw a lot of major realignments, the loss of both parents, changes of jobs, a lot of travelling, and 5 or 6 years when I scarcely played the guitar at all, followed by the realisation that it's one of the most important things in my life, and I can't not play it.

It's inevitable, therefore, that the tracks are rather more disparate. Some are rather raggedly-recorded, too. But proud I am of all of them, in one way or another, representing as they do an historical record of ideas and events.

To buy individual tracks or the whole album as a download, visit my Bandcamp site.
