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. Limited pressing. 8 page booklet with essay by Barry Monks and rare, unseen photographs.
