Just to let everyone know what is happening with regard to Phil Beer albums.
After moving from Riverside up to the Cullompton studio complex run by Oysterhouse publishing two and a half years ago, I stockpiled a large amount of recorded work which will gradually see the light of day over the next year or so. I have enough material to complete box set 2 and possibly material for a 3rd one. I am now prioritizing the material recorded for a double album 'Boys called William, Girls called Nancy'. This, as you may have guessed is predominantly traditional in flavour and consists of an acoustic disc and an electric disc. The acoustic material is very sparse and the electric disc explores further the idea of my old mate and compatriot Ashley Hutchings of British trad music as actually being our own form of country music.
There are a large amount of acoustic tracks recorded which, upon consideration, don't necessarily fit the theme outlined here and may well appear on a different album together with several instrumental pieces. It is very likely now that this album will be the first to appear as I seem to have ended up already editing and mixing at least six of the tracks already. The working title for this album is-
Plays guitar and fiddle- sings a bit.
There will be previews shortly when the new 'Chudleigh Roots' website emerges.
There will also be some free downloads.
Watch and wait!
