This was a compilation of my first two CDs, recorded in 2000 and 2002.  You can tell they go back a bit as my beard was still brown when I did the first one…

The songs were written over quite a long period of time, when I was living on the Wirral and veering between New Brighton, Birkenhead and Bebington.  I was busy running ceilidh bands and playing around the Merseyside folk clubs, as well as with a couple of Irish bands - a nice Liverpool based band the name of which escapes me now, and the duo of Positively Fourth street - which was manic and a lot of fun while it lasted!

The CDs contained some of my all-time favourite songs - The Fences (which I still think is the best song I have ever written), Miss Jones’ Song (which some other people think is the best song I have ever written) and the blues I want played at my funeral - Four Black Horses.

NB - Sadly this is no longer available as there aren’t any copies left.  But the pick of the tracks are on the ultimate compilation “Too Many Fences”.
