new andrew loake CD now available . . .
During the last 30 years or so, I have written a number of tunes that, until now, have never been committed to record. In the meantime, I've played about with them, re-arranged them, cut them up and put them back together again in different shapes. There are also three tunes written by other people, which have been subjected to the same process.
This album is an attempt to put an end to that process (so that I can concentrate properly on writing something new!)
So, some of these recordings are new versions of old tunes and others are old recordings. Much of the recording work was done at home, some as long ago as the mid-1980s, and the rest was done at Far Heath Studios in Northamptonshire.
I played everything myself and the result is perhaps a little more "homespun" (OK, low budget) than my previous recordings, but it is what it is - music from another time.
