ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Love in Different Ways" is a collection of 11 songs which I'd like to describe as "Celtic Soul".
The recording concept was traditional...instrument-amplifier-microphones--record! There was no programming.
I was privileged to have some great musicians working on the songs with me over a 2 year period here at Small World Studio in Wernau, South Germany.
And here they are: Mr. Colin Weavill- classical guitar, Oliver Utzt- guitars, mandolin and banjo, Philip Niessen-guitars, Glen Turner-guitars, Calo Rapallo-acoustic guitar. Klaus Marquardt-violin and viola. Andy Schoy-drums and percussion, Bert Smaak, Flo Dauner, Wolf Simon and Bodo Schopf-drums. Josée Hurlock-backing vocals and Max Hirschberg-keyboards. I played various basses and sang all of the lead and most of the backing vocals.
The title track "Love in Different Ways" is most definitely a love song, but open to a variety of interpretations. Featuring a drum and guitar barrage from Andy, Philip and Oliver. This song I think sets up the mood of the album and best describes the diversity of the songs that follow.
"Got Love" is a fun foot-tapping "ditty" with an Irish flavour, dedicated to my Grandma, mostly acoustic guitars, banjo and violin, and featuring my "one man barbershop choir".
"Kenny and Pat" is a true story of teenage romance in a dismal town in North England in the 60's. Again there's a strong folk element here. Andy's percussion, and guitars, mandolin and violin from Colin, Philip, Oliver and Klaus support the story beautifully. I allowed myself a couple of "teenage colloquialisms" in the lyrics....and I wouldn't be surprised if Kenny and Patty are still together today!
"Give it all Away" is my tribute to British jazz-rockers "Patto" who blew me away many years ago, and still do today. It's a real blues-rock shuffle featuring blistering guitar and "Wurly" piano from Glen and Max, and Bodo on drums. My 4 bar bass solo is a direct quote from the original solo from the incredible, but sadly deceased Patto guitarist Ollie Halsall. I also took the liberty of changing one word! Anybody know which one?
"Gather my Children" is a very personal song dedicated to my parents, grandparents and anyone else who doesn't give up. I'd call it bluesy-soul, built on Bert's famous groove and featuring guitar performances from Glen, Philip and Oliver and a massed choir of 2...Josée and myself.
"Sailor Song" This is a cross between a bad luck blues and a fairy tail! It's almost a walz and you can just about feel the roll and swell under your feet...thanks to Wolf's unique drum take and gorgeous guitars and violin from Colin, Philip and Klaus. I had fun with the lyrics too...a tongue in cheek whinge about being given the boot!
"Simple Life" This song is one of my favourites and I hope...one of my most expressive vocal performances. Written by my old friend and musical conspirator Fraser Cameron. An insistent bass-line, steamroller drums from Flo, Calo's slamming acoustic, Oliver's battery of guitar FX and Josée's vocals.... you'll feel that Northern wind in your face!
"If Time Would Stand Still" This is a heartfelt albeit naive ballad... a prayer! Also one of the hardest songs to nail down. The rock-ballad approach had to be softened to allow the lyric to speak for itself. Featuring Max on organ, Glen's soulful lead guitar and Josée's voice. And yes!...I do belong to those who believe John Lennon's Imagine to be one of the most beautiful songs of all time.
"Three minute Love Song" also a Fraser song, is a simple declaration of love for his widow Ellen and his kids. It's a Northern melody, purple as heather and beautifully executed by Oliver, Klaus and Andy. I dedicate this song to the Ellens in my life.
"Why Don't You Tell Me" is a protest song, taking a swipe at bigmouths and bullshitters, corporate thieves, political villains and general media bombardment. Again I allowed myself a little chortle with the lyrics. Great rocking drums, guitars and violin delivery by Wolf, Philip and Klaus and backing vocals by Josée.
"Für Immer und Dich" (Forever and you) Well! seeing as how I've lived in Germany for 25 years...why not do a song in German? A special friend recommended this song from the sadly missed German Rock-Poet Rio Reiser, and it hit home immediately. I hope he would approve of this version of his soul song.
So that's it! Eleven distinctly individual songs performed by a good few of my best friends and musical cohorts. Hope you like it! Hope you buy it!
