Flashback in time
So what do these CD's contain? First up will be Hello Sailor, a collection of songs recorded way back in the late 1970s. Some tracks are acoustic demos, others were recorded with The Strolling Players, a bunch of musicians from Cheltenham where he lived at the time. The tracks on Hello Sailor, guaranteed to take me on a nostalgic journey, are:
Join Me; Get To the Lieutenant; George's Bar; Down In The Cellar; The Boys Would Like You To Know; Keep Way From Me; I Try Not To Hear; More; Window; Piccadilly Lights; Watching The Diamond Disappear; Singing At The Wheel.
Next will be Fun With Dave from 1984-85. These tracks were recorded in Montreaux, Switzerland with David Richards, who in Roy's words, "went onto work with lesser acts such as Queen, Duran Duran and David Bowie." The tracks are:
Man Overboard; Jenny Takes A First Look At Life; Don't Leave Me Here; Every Single Time; The Man To Blame; Sleeping With Ghosts; Superheroes; Falling; Without Eddie; Small Adventurer; Marion Jones; It Just Might Happen.
To get a clearer picture of the man himself, I suggest you frequent his new MySpace website here. You won't regret it.
