"Songs From The Heart" is a stunning double CD collection of what I consider to be 30 of the best solo songs that I have written to date. "Songs From The Heart" spans over a twenty year period from 1993 to 2014 and features songs from all of my 5 solo mainstream albums that I have released to date. So why a compilation album now?
Well after releasing 3 albums in 6 years (make that 4 albums if you include my gospel album "The Life Of God In The Soul Of Man"), I felt that now would be a good time to consolidate all of the solo music that I have produced so far, and it also provides me with a chance to take stock again, and to have some breathing space, before embarking on whatever my next new solo album will be in the future. "Songs From The Heart" is a very strong album in it‘s own right and provides a great record of the work that I have done over the last 20 years. Should I buy "Songs From The Heart" if I already own all of your 5 solo alubms? Well that depends on you as an individual. Whilst there are no new songs on "Songs From The Heart", all of the songs from my first three albums have been remastered, plus some songs have been edited to make the whole album flow that much better, and one song "Beautiful To Me" has been remixed. This is definitely a collectors album, and so not everyone may want to buy it, but I personally would buy this album for the artwork alone, before you even get to the music! "Songs From The Heart" features the stunning artwork of renowned illustator Simon Williams. Simon Williams is the artist who did all of those stunning Pendragon album covers from "The World" in 1990 right through to the "Believe" album in 2005. The cover of "Songs From The Heart" is simply stunning and really beautiful and I am so pleased with the final look of the album. Inside the booklet is a list of all 30 of the songs on the album and the musicians who played on every song. To me as a musician myself, I love reading booklet notes and knowing which of my favourite musicians played on each song. Also included within the booklet is a biography of my solo career and and an overview of my years with Pendragon by my good friend Didier Pemice.
Finally, there is a photo gallery in the booklet that documents pictures of me, plus photographs of some of the memorable live concerts that I have played over the years with Pendragon. I am so pleased with this whole package, the music, the illustrations, the photos, the biography and the whole look of this album, and I hope that you will all like it too! "Songs From The Heart" was mastered in June 2014 by Rob Aubrey at Aubitt Studios in Southampton.
