At last LINE OF BLUE – my 5th solo album from 1985 – will be released on CD from September – The songs were written between 1982 and 1984 in some of my favourite locations both in England, and in Bermuda, where I sang for over 10 months.  The album was recorded by Mick Dolan, and songs include RYDAL, EVERY ROLL OF THUNDER, and SHINE SILENTLY.  Guests on the album are Phil Beer, Bill Zorn, Matt Clifford, Paul Metsers, Geoff March, Steve Dolan, and Trevor Foster.

Finally, I’ve really been enjoying the tennis (particularly Richard Gasquet’s backhand) and last weekend’s dramatic Grand Prix at Silverstone.
