his is Jack Lancaster’s first solo album and sees him exploring his childhood memories from the North East, with specific references to the last whaling and iron communities in England. The album has some fantastic tracks, especially the atmospheric ‘Old man of the sea’ and Kilten Castle’ with some great Gary Moore electric guitar. ‘Skinningrove bay Parts 1 and 2’ are brilliant with some thoughtful lyrics regarding the areas industrial past.
The cover has a small sticker removal mark and some minor edge rubbing, but he spine is legible and definitely worthy of a VG+ grading. The labels are excellent, while the vinyl has a great sound with a couple of minor clicks on Side 1 that do not in any way spoil the enjoyment of a fabulous album.
