I met Ralph Emmett on the first day of Art College in 1968.
He found me a room in the house where he was staying. We'd both brought our guitars,
both wrote songs and both loved the Beatles. So it was inevitable that we'd spend
the next three years writing songs. We played them over and over again into a
tape recorder. When we left college we lost touch, but I've been carrying the
box of tapes around ever since. Now that I have the technology to convert music
from analogue to digital, I copied around thirty of the songs to CD. The next
logical step was to take a bunch of the songs and re-record them, in the way that
we dreamed of recording them over thirty years ago.
I think the songs stand
up pretty well. They're teenagers' songs, of course. Heavily influenced by the
Beatles, The Incredible String Band and countless other 60s bands. And maybe they
should have been left alone -but I'm glad that the ghosts of the songs can now
be laid to rest. And I hope that you'll enjoy them - in the spirit of the Sixties,
of course. This CD is dedicated to Ralph, and to those days we'll never see again.
