I recorded the first "album" on a cassette format only. To be honest,
it was really a demo that got a bit out of hand. So many people asked for a copy, I added a few extra tracks to make
having it, worth it. It was done on a Sansui 6 track machine and sold far more copies than intended,.. I know I
had two runs of 250 done, plus the load I lost count of on the decks at home!
No accounting for taste I guess.
I was not happy with the quality and hence this CD is the original tracks, given some (quite a lot of) digital cleaning,.. I would have
done a complete re-mix although the original multi-track is long gone and was in a format I can't use anyway.
If you want a copy of this one, just drop me an email It costs £6.99 plus postage to wherever you are,..
... that's gonna be a variable depending on where you are.
-> SONG FOR RUTH
This was written principally for my daughter Ruth, as the title suggests I s'pose. I'd split with her mother and
tried to stay friendly, which meant going to baby-sit when she went out for the evening. The chorus really was the
result of a converstaion with a very sleepy little girl, who believed in fairy-tale endings.
It also has a second interpretation; that of a daddy in some uniform, coming back to watch over
his little princess. I'm currently working on a video idea to go with this. If you were one of the many people who
called me a b*****d for singing this song and making you feel stuff you thought was well hidden and I know there's lot of you
out there watching this space,..
don't watch the video when it comes out.
-> THIS IS CRAZY!
I guess music takes its toll on my relationships, or maybe I just fell for the wrong girls. This was me looking at
what I knew was coming,.. I just couldn't do much to stop the train,..
-> HALF WAY FROM HEAVEN,...
Dedicated to a famous war photographer and based on a comment he made about sending home the pictures, only to have the
"I can't give people this stuff to look at when they are eating breakfast!"
-> WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?
I once knew this really classy girl and for a while, thought she actually liked me,.. I was young,..
she broke my
-> DON'T GIVE A DAMN!
The girl in this song does exist,.. I don't know if she realises this song is about her.
Frankly, I don't give a damn!
-> GROWN MEN DON'T CRY,..
Men are macho, right? Yeah,.. and they are hard right? Yeah,.. and they don't cry right? Yeah,.. right,..
-> ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD
Drinking and driving is a bit like playing russian roulette with a 4inch pack howitzer (friggin' huge army gun), only
you point it at random crowds and yer mates,.. with no idea if it's loaded tonight
