Great Leveller begins to take off.

After writing it in July, popping it back and forth to Hereford for some piano polish and undertaking a couple of abortive recording sessions with Hywel, we decided this evening to go back to basics and start again.

And what an improvement. It’s the opposite of ‘if it an’t broke don’t fix it’. It was definitely broke and it’s such a relief to hear the guitars now tightly arranged, staying out of the way of the lead vocal and giving room for the bass and, even better than that, a chance for Hywel to go all Billy Preston with his Hammond organ sound. He even found time to make up a bit of a Yes-ish keyboard intro.

Celebrations took place in the form of a Chai Street curry and a nice cold pint of Cobra beer. Well deserved.
