Album Notes
This album does not fit easily into any straightforward categorisation. David Drinkwater's musical experiences range from classical to traditional to contemporary styles. This is reflected in the instrumental backings, where fiddles,
melodeon, guitar, bass and percussion, are augmented by layers of blues and swing from David Boyce's powerful saxophone melodies and rhythms.

Follow the hero Robert from infancy, when his mother sings him to sleep during post-war austerity Britain ('Sweet Lullabies'), straight into the wild recklessness of early 1960s London ('Wandering Heart'). He falls in love with Carolyn ('Cold Light of Day'), and when his advances are rejected he gets consolation from his friends ('Good Beer, Good Wine'). When offered a job away from London he is torn ('Just Can't Leave Her') and experiences both sides of rejection ('Stupid Heart' & 'No Point of Contact'), loss and separation. Finally fate intervenes and by chance he meets up with Carolyn who has realised she has been in love with him all along ('I Need You'). They enjoy the fulfilment of love ('The Heat of the Day') and the ultimate triumph of humanity ( 'Love Loving' ).
