This is the album I have waited my whole life to record.
These are the songs that I’ve danced to, made love to, cried to and yes, even fell
on the floor to as a young man in the infancy of my career. These songs and singers
were the oxygen that fueled my passion to sing.
I was a skinny, cocky, all-mouth-and-trousers teenager living in North London without
two pennies to rub together. One of my few possessions was a small battery driven
transistor radio wich was permanently glued to my ear. With the help of Radio Luxembourg
and Radio Caroline, I discovered the artistry of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Jackie
Wilson, James Brown, The Temptations, The Four Tops and so many more. I tried to
sound like them and dress like them. I wanted to BE them. Growing up, a mere spindle
of a lad, these were my Gods and my heroes.
So it is to these masters of soul, and their genius and prodigious talent that I
humbly dedicate this album.
