06_The Road To The Promised Land (1980)
Another of my very early songs, this started out as a demo… a 6/8 shuffle, almost a blues waltz… and by the time of the ‘Hard Station’ album sessions it had morphed into this mid tempo Caribbean groove. I love playing with the architecture of a piece of music. Lyrically it’s the positive side of the coin that had ‘Trouble Round The Bend’ on the flip side. ‘When we rise up in the morning, Oh, the beauty we’ll find’. Arty McGlynn on rhythm electric guitar, Fran Breen on drums and Tommy Moore on bass. Betsy Cook and myself on keyboards and vocals.
