Description

Deluxe edition of Let's Start Again Bap Kennedy's 6th solo album of original material. His original encounter with the record business was as lead singer and primary songwriter for cult Belfast rockers The Energy Orchard, with whom he recorded 5 albums. While Bap usually records in England and America, this time he wanted to bring together some of the top musicians in his native Northern Ireland to play on 'Let's Start Again'. The most local of the local talents is bass player and harmony vocalist, Brenda Kennedy, Bap's wife. Brenda is also a regular member of Bap's live band, as are two of the album's other musicians - rummer Rabb Bennett and virtuoso guitarist Gordy McAllister. After the Celtic melancholy of 'The Sailor's Revenge', there is a more upbeat rootsy Americana feel to 'Let's Start Again'. The country-roots style of the record is something that Bap's co-producer, Mudd Wallace first realised would suit Bap as far back as the early 80's. This edition comes with bonus CD containing classic Bap recordings and he says of it, "this CD is bookended by my first solo recording 'Long Time a Comin'' when another chapter began, with Steve Earle producing my album 'Domestic Blues' The final bonus track is 'Too Old For Fairytales' which was the last thing I recorded before I returned to my home town of Belfast, after twenty something years of exile. The rest of the CD features album versions of songs that have become live favourites like 'Please Return to Jesus' although this acoustic rendering is much different from the recording produced by Mark Knopfler or indeed the live version.The tracks span about 18 years up to this point. A hell of a lot has happened in that time...hopefully a lot more to come. Maybe that's why the new album is called 'Let's Start Again.'
