When I play with the trio people often ask, “do you have a CD with the songs you just played on it?” That seems pretty logical and so we thought it was about time we met that demand.
I suggested the idea to Charlie Hart and we fixed a date and went into his studio in South London and over a couple of days recorded the 14 tracks here; some come from the old Atcha Acoustic days and some are covers that we often play and so represent songs we usually perform live.
There’s just one new tune right at the end, which is quite amusing in a dramatic way!
It was fun making it and nice because Charlie has always been a part of the recording and along with the excellent recording work he added a few touches; an accordion here and a mandolin there. Apart from one splash of guitar from Kit Morgan the record is basically live, mistakes and all and definitely not sanitized.
Thanks to everyone who has come to the gigs and maybe some new friends who might like this acoustic outing as well.
