new CD: Studio Day #1

Marvellous day in the Hall at Air studios...
Got lots done, accompanied by the indefatigable Chris Hatt on piano.... had the ever-hilarious Richard Stilgoe as a guest for a few songs, and even managed a few bits of a cappella.

We have the excellent Nigel Short producing...and he was firm but fair; so we achieved a great deal.
We had Jake Jackson as Recording Engineer helping us too.

Our album is our cricket compilation, and so the slendid cricket maestro, David Rayvern Allen, was also in attendence.

Our new manager, Robin Tyson and his assistant, Katie Hickey added to the party atmosphere.
Robin and David joined us in a rousing chorus of Jerusalem...[no more clues, you'll just have to buy it and listen in the Summer].

More guests in the next few days, Eliza Lumley singing with us and Alex L'Estrange playing bass and piano... and helping us with his tremendous arrangement...

Many thanks to Steve Long and Signum Records for this opportunity.
