|David Brandon brings you
some wonderful songs, with orchestral arrangements and backing from Colin
Campbell and his music
Like numerous other singers of the mid-sixties, I learned my trade on the
Mecca Dance Hall circuit, which led to offers of sessions with the BBC.
For many years, I worked with bands and orchestras at various venues: with a
twenty-piece orchestra, crammed into The Opposite Lock Club, Birmingham, to
Fairfield Hall, in Croydon and The Chichester Festival Theatre, sometimes
finding myself supporting artists like Lulu and Cilla Black.
I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with extremely talented musicians,
and directors such as Brian Fahey and Malcolm Lockyer. One session included
Marion Montgomery and her husband, Laurie Holloway …… wonderful!
The music and composers that have influenced me the most, are represented on
this CD: the melodies, the simple, yet so-effective lyrics, combine to
express the ever bitter-sweet wonders of being in love. I’m sure you know
what I mean.
And so, with a final touch of genius, from Colin Campbell and his music,
here it is ……. ‘Lovers Songbook’...
An Affair To Remember, You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To, I’ll Remember
April, Come Back to Me, Two for the Road, And This Is My Beloved, In the
Still of the Night, It Had Better Be Tonight, All the Things You Are, The
Impossible Dream, The Pleasure of Her Company, We’ll Gather Lilacs, My
Foolish Heart, Do I Love You (Because You’re Beautiful), The Way You Look
