Genius work by a singer-songwriter you've never heard of – a beautiful little album recorded in late 60s Paris, but done with English language lyrics! Nick Garrie's a hell of a great songwriter – one with the poetry of Leonard Cohen, the fragility of Tim Hardin, and the willingness to record with the larger arrangements that often brought out the best sounds from each of those singers! The set has Nick singing and playing guitar alongside full backings arranged by French producer Eddie Vartan – never too over the top, but spacious enough to set the album proudly next to the best early Columbia work by Cohen, or some of Hardin's sweetest sides for Verve
. CD also features a rare single produced by guitar legend Mickey Baker, a few demo tracks, and the full tunes from the rare 1968 session with Eddie Vartan! 19 tracks in all – including "Ink Pot Eyes", "Bungles Tours", "David's Prayer", "Wheel Of Fortune", "Queen Of Queens", "Deeper Tones Of Blue", "Evening", "Close Your Eyes", "Little Bird", and "Can I Stay With You".
