My new C.D. is now finished and will be mixed next week.
It features Tull songs from the early days, played instrumentally ,with new arrangements and extra material, written specifically for the album,by myself.
I play classical guitar ,as well as mandolin,bouzouki,acoustic guitars,flute and bass clarinet. (and a touch of electric!).
It has been a very exciting month of recording, with just me and James Bragg,an amazing engineer,working long
and highly enjoyable days.
A list of the tracks will be posted here, as soon as the record is finalised; the songs chosen are my favourite "quiet"
Tull tracks and I know that J.T. fans will love it!
