Editorial Reviews

RMS:RAY RUSSELL, MO FOSTER and SIMON PHILLIPS - three musicians who know that the only true accolade is the admiration of one's peers. Whether in the studio or on tour they have, between them, worked with major artists as diverse as JEFF BECK, GIL EVANS, STANLEY CLARKE, THE WHO, TINA TURNER, PHIL COLLINS, JACK BRUCE, GERRY RAFFERTY, CAT STEVENS, JOAN ARMATRADING and GEORGIE FAME. Ray now composes music for Film and TV (A Touch Of Frost), Mo is a record producer and author (17 Watts?) and Simon is a record producer and full-time member of the US band TOTO. From the 70's to the early 80's there was a period where it was possible to work in the studio almost every day - and very often all day. (It was sometimes even seen as relaxing to go on tour). To get things started Ray and Mo composed a couple of new pieces and in order to expand the tonal palette, they brought in fello sessioneers NIGEL WARREN-GREEN on cello and RONNIE ASPREY on soprano sax. Ray wrote string arrangements that featured five over-dubbed cellos and having initially rehearsed the parts at Mo's house, the band spent a couple of days at Toftrees Studio tucked away in the North Downs near Woldingham in Sussex. It was an encouraging start, everyone was happy, and the band went their separate ways for a while. Some months later it just happened during 1982 that Ray, Mo and Simon were booked together to play on an album at Trident Studios in Soho. The producer/engineer on this project was top man Greg Walsh, and, such was their combined expertise, the album was finished a day earlier than planned. This meant that, bizarrely, there was a major London studio potentially available for the whole day - with all the gear already set up. This was too good an opportunity to miss. The day in question was a Monday and the guys spent the whole weekend - in flurry of manuscript paper - frantically gathering together enough material for the whole album. The basic tracks were recorded in one long and exciting, but nevertheless exausting and hand-cramping, 14-hour session. A few weeks later the brass did their stuff and then the album was mixed. Musicians: RAY RUSSELL, MO FOSTER and SIMON PHILLIPS. Guest Musicians: HENRY LOWTHER, DEREK WATKINS, MALCOLM GRIFFITHS, RONNIE ASPREY, PETER VAN HOOKE and KIM GOODY. Bonus Track Guest Musicians: MARK ISHAM, GARY HUSBAND, NIGEL WARREN-GREEN and MEL GAYNOR.
