ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the late 80s we mixed analogue recordings to various digital formats, only making albums available on cassette. In September 1990 we moved as a family to France and concentrated on French production, leaving a quantity of English digital masters on the shelf. When we ‘went digital’, we inserted eight of these English songs into subsequent French albums - you may have missed them on the way. Over the years many have asked how to get hold of songs from that era: until now that hasn’t been possible. So we decided to ‘put them out there’ for anyone interested in a trip down memory lane. One or two songs have been ditched in the process, but I stand by the rest! I hope you find what you’re looking for among the 37 songs in this two-volume Vintage collection.

In Vol 2 I’ve also added 9 slightly more recent songs taken from ‘Rien de Nouveau’ (Nothing New, 2005). Three of them are straight copies from that album but 6 have never been heard in English before. So I translated and replaced the vocals and got Tony Harris to remix them. If you want to complete the picture, don’t forget the English CD ‘Where Truth Lies’ produced in both language versions in 1995. In all honesty that particular album didn’t sell well enough for us to be able to pursue the idea of English productions at that time. Looking back it’s a shame not to have produced more in English, but it’s down to finances in the end… Enjoy!
