Probably one of the best albums I was ever involved in is the Ashley Hutchings solo project ‘By Gloucester docks’ which has just been re-released by Talking Elephant.
If you do nothing more this festive season, please check it out. Its an old fashioned concept album that tells a story and contains some of Ashleys finest writing.
The dream team band were, myself, Christine Collister, Polly Bolton, Dave Mattacks, Graeme Taylor, Steve Ashley and many others and it was recorded at Millstream studios in Cheltenham in 1986.
Robin Denselow has just given it the thumbs up!!
Happy new year.
