Track List & Description
WOODSTOCK 50 Major-key Medium-tempo Folk-rock
Fifty years on, Howard revisits the dreams of the 60's, in a moody song where wisdom tempers nostalgia - or vice versa.
PARADISE, PASSING THROUGH Major/Minor Medium-tempo Waltz
This lush, lilting tune portrays the Polynesian idyll of Gaugin, or someone like him.
BIRDS OF SPAIN Minor-key Slow-tempo Spanish Ballad
Here are Howard's soulful, evocative reflections on exile, accompanied by flamenco guitar, Latin percussion, and Russ Boswell’s majestic bass.
SOMEDAY Major-key Medium-tempo Folk-rock
A vision of the future, hesitant yet hopeful, this bright and fervent song is addressed to all of us.
THE PROMISE Major-key Medium-tempo Pop-rock
The Promise is - just that - a joyous, affirming litany of personal life-lessons, and pledges to a younger generation.
TELL ME NOW Major-key Medium-tempo Folk
This direct, emotional song tells a slightly ambiguous story, with pretty guitars and lovely background vocals.
THERE IS ONLY LOVE Major-key Medium-tempo Folk Waltz
The album's only cover tune, this glorious Jon Brooks composition is profound and uplifting, featuring Howard's heartfelt vocal and a beautiful viola descant.
IT ALL FALLS DOWN Major-key Medium-up Waltz
The Empire is declining and falling, but I hear a waltz – goofy, sardonic and Dystopian.
CROSSROADS Major/Minor Medium-tempo Folk-rock
A moving song of ecological crisis that reminds us that we are all refugees, and that there is no 'Planet B'.
