Description

This unique collection from one of Britain's greatest singer songwriters is released to coincide with the publication of his autobiography of the same title. The release's 'words-and-song' format reveals the man behind the music. The three CDs feature beautifully-crafted songs interspered with selected readings from the autobiography to take the listener on a journey from Ralph's childhood in 1950s south London to his discovery of the guitar as a teenager, from his earliest memories to the dawn of his forty-year musical career in the mid-1960s. Although the set's music, poetry and stories reflect the past with sensitivity and insight, all are brand new recordings; indeed, three of the songs were written specially for this album and have not previously been released. Disc 1: As Far As I Can Tell (song) / Egg / Dressing / Bruce / Steam / Brighton Belle (song) / Frank / Daddy's Here (song) / Cold / God / The Big Tree (song) / Woods (poem) / Magic / That Sounds Nice (instr.) / 1952 / Bentley And Craig (song) / Warts / Mint Walk Mission / Mrs Adlam's Angels (song) / Shave / Barges (song) / Hedge / Old Puggy Mearns (poem) / Trousers / Ice / Wembley / Pick Up A Gun (song) / Haircut.

Disc 3: Traces (song) / Van / Riviera / Returns / Michael / Clare To Here (song) / Dumper / Hospital / America / I Love My Baby (song) / Letter / Disharmony / Heron Song (song) / Roadsong (poem) / Crossroads / Madame Matuzzi (song) / Hotel / WC / Nanna / Friends / Nanna's Song (song).
