by Colin Harper & The Peaceful Minds

Neil Young, Bert Jansch, Richard Thompson - it's that kind of thing: a bit melancholic, a bit discursive but hopefully uplifting in its own way. On the other hand, you might think some of it sounds like a low volume version of The Who...

Album Notes
During 2010 I recorded Titanium Flag, an instrumental suite inspired by the Arctic, which was released in Summer 2010. The muse was flowing at that time: in parallel with the instrumental material a lot of vocal pieces were being written and recorded, with my friend and collaborator Cormac O’Kane adding the fairy dust to both projects, whenever his frenetic schedule allowed. In the year that passed between the first sessions and the last, enough perspective had flowed under the bridge to reshape what might have been a set of songs defined by anger and loss into a shorter offering in which paths in the forest twilight are still yet visible and within reach. And, just beyond those woods, the glistening lights of an inn where glasses are always at least half-full. One can but hope!

The Peaceful Minds:

Colin Harper: vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar (5), keyboards (9)
Karen Smyth: backing vocals
Cormac O’Kane: keyboards, bass (2, 3), electric guitar (4, 7)
Ali MacKenzie: bass
‘Late-Night’ Tony Furnell: drums/percussion (except track 1: Jim Cuthbertson)

Special guests:

Carol-Anne Lennie: lead and harmony vocals (1)
‘The Legendary’ Andy Roberts: electric guitars (1)
Linley Hamilton: trumpets (1), flugelhorn (11)

‘A Part Of Eternity’ and ‘The Last Place On Earth’ are new edits/mixes of tracks previously released on Titanium Flag.

The album was recorded and mixed by Cormac O’Kane, with Bernard Flanagan, and mastered by Cormac O’Kane.

Design is by Mark Case of White Noise Studios, Belfast.
