Halsall is easily one of the coolest and most under-recognized British artists of all time.

Welcome remaster and repackage of British guitarist Ollie Halsall's collection of one man band demos recorded in 1979. It's important to note this is not a 'guitar album' but it is more about Ollie the singer/songwriter, with results that are deeply revealing. These are 3-minute pop masterpieces which owe far more to Lennon & McCartney than to John Cale or Kevin Ayers and the rest of Ollie's more indulgent associations. The original demos fall in such a perfect sequence it is hard to imagine them not being intended as a complete album, which is how they remain presented here. Completing the package is Ollie's self-portrait on the cover. Classic CD jewel case, 8 page booklet with essay by Barry Monks and rare, unseen photographs. Please note: Digital download NOT included due to licensing restrictions.
