03_Trouble Round The Bend (1983)
From the lesser known ‘True For You’ album, this is one of my first ever compositions and one I often sang touring solo in the late 70s as I tried to find a new artistic shape. JJ Cale, Ry Cooder and Little Feat were on everybody’s turntable at the time. Some of that rubbed off I guess. The lyrics were kinda prophetic in a way. I was heading into rough seas and had no clear sense of direction… and there was indeed trouble up ahead! Betsy Cook’s organ and Phil Palmer’s slide guitar add a suitable sense of menace.
