The Next Time - Limited Edition
I’m a writer not a fighter. I’m a lawyer not a singer. Yet I can pack a punch or blast out a song if necessary. Music has always been my vocation but of late it’s been a happy vacation.
Taking time out from defending the indefensible I may end up defending myself for this limited edition CD of songs, some I have written and some are cover songs, well known and probably better in the original. Still as always I have done my best and I hope to entertain. The law is actually per se no different to music. Both require attention and application.
I am obliged to many for my work in both camps. To Dec and Con Cluskey of the Bachelors who made my dreams come true. To JustCarmen who started all this off for me. To Bobby Solo who always encourages me. To Dave and Tiina Taylor, without their pushing and shoving I would have stopped at the first hurdle. To all the artists and musicians who never say no to me especially when I make an offer they can’t refuse!... To the sound engineers who have done a great job.
To my new ‘amigo’ Pete Ware whose patience with me seems never ending and without whose constant ‘tweaks’ and ‘re-writes’ I would be lost in space.
To my family who can’t understand where I get the time to do all of this and whose time I have taken without leave. To my mother who forced me to learn music from the age of eight and my father, the true singer of the family sadly now passed away but watching over me, who dug many a garden to pay for my lessons. I hope I have made good. So ‘til The Next Time enjoy!!!
