New Album on its Way (7th Oct 2005)

Chris Simpson writes - River Records will shortly be releasing In Tomorrow - a 2 CD /1 DVD set.

To meet the forthcoming Dutch tour I wanted to put together the album that we're always being asked for. Wherever Linda and I play, we are always asked if there is anything that's 'Just the two of you' or 'What we heard tonight' and, until now, we have always had to reply with a negative.

Concerts are often recorded, mostly straight off the desk, and so I went through as many of those recordings as I could find, to pick out the tracks that are either not yet studio recordings, or never will be. Many were unusable because the balance of guitars to vocals was unacceptable, but there are a few 'borderline' tracks, like Songbird, which was actually part of a sound check.

They are not all perfect, there's no chance to go back and do it again when you're on stage- but even so, this is one of the best compilations I have ever put together. Having started, I thought - why not add a few obscure studio recordings? And what about some with 'the chaps' great musicians that we have the good fortune to call friends? So the project grew and became a compilation of live and studio work, some with other musicians, some without.

I have added a short DVD - four tracks from our Ticket to the Moon DVD, just to remind you what we look like.

Hope you like it.
