David McWilliams is probably best known for his single ‘The days of Pearly Spencer’, and had released 3 fairly successful albums on the Major Minor label, before switching to DAWN. This album was his first released on DAWN and was not a commercial success. However, this is a masterpiece and lack of commercial success should be completely ignored. Great musicians throughout, although a special shout out goes to the drummer, who adds something really special to the feel of the whole album. Unfortunately I can’t find out who the backing musicians were, but they created and exceptional sound and get the best out of some stunning material (all written by David).
Fantastic album that cannot be recommended highly enough. This should have sold in huge quantities. I love it.
