British Guitar Music drawn from different wells and different times brought together in this release. Contributions by Tony Clarkin (Magnum), Richard Tandy (ELO) and even the late Carl Wayne (The Move). SEVEN, though an eclectic mix of songs, is in the style of latter-day Beatlesque pop.
This is a collection of Catchy rock tunes including a stomping cover of the Buddy Holly classic “Well … All Right” alongside nine original compositions which exhibit the influence of Bob Dylan with welcome nods to The Beatles and, of course, his old pal Jeff Lynne and ELO too. So named after the “various interludes which sort of bubble up between tracks”
Across the Divide
Eleven songs that not only vary in tempo and style but also contain pensive lyrics and deliver some really catchy tunes with a message. There are very definite ELO and Beatles influences here. Produced by former ELO bassist Martin Smith – it has some acoustically driven numbers and some more complex constructions too.
Songs of love and fun released for the millennia in 2001. Some classic songs ‘City Girl’ and ‘Do you mind’ are amongst its 16 tracks.
This collection began life as a one-off for the ELO fan club back in 1992. It has been in constant reprint ever since and is now a classic collectors item of punchy, melodic pop-rock by ELO musicians Richard Tandy, Dave Morgan and Martin Smith.
Synth Orchestrated rock and pop concept album about space and time. “Apart from the science fiction form, the content is really about universal questions, and both the compositions and the lyrics are impressively haunting.”
