White Lies From Tall Grass

This has got to be my Country/Rock album.

It was released in 2008 and put together from sessions recorded at Pete Lamb’s Music Workshop studio in Potterne, Devizes, Wilts.

This is what I wrote about it at the time:

“A kid listens to the sounds from his radio. He could be anywhere in the world. His open mind and heart know no borders.

There’s just this sound. It fires him up. The spark goes deep. It’s cool. Someday it will be born again in him. Then it’s true.

For this kid the feeling of freedom and romance will never die. He calls them White Lies From The Tall Grass.”

MERRY GO ROUND; A bit of Country/Rock n’ Roll, loves’ Merry Go Round.

MOMENT OF AWAKENING: Another version of this song, this time with Paul Godden on Weissenborn.

BORN AGAIN; Country love song plain and simple.

NOT MYSELF TODAY; Can’t quite believe it’s all so good.

SIMPLE TRUTH; Another love song with acoustic guitar recorded in Harry O’Shea’s front room.

GOOD ENOUGH REASON; Life affirming, not giving up attitude.

HARDWOOD FLOOR; Country Rocker, my old mate Ethem “The Mad Turk” on lead guitar.
