about

The ball started rolling for this project back in January 2011, when top sound engineer Haydn Bendall suggested we get together to make a record.
Astonishingly, the wheels were in motion within a few weeks when Tony Cronk offered to finance the recording of the bunch of songs at Ralph Salmins' lovely little studio in Welwyn Garden City. That was at the end of February 2011, with Neil Hubbard & Adam Phillips featuring on guitars, Mel Collins on sax, Steve Pearce on bass and Ralph Salmins on the drums.
With the invaluable help of Gary McCulloch & Mark Lewis, several sessions of overdubs followed in Haydn's studio at Strongroom Studios in Shoreditch, East London. But it wasn't until the owner of the Bag O'Nails Club in London, Malik Ishmuratov, stepped in to help that we were able to finish the recordings in October 2014.
Finally, special words of thanks are due to a fine Yorkshireman. Without Mike Henderson's loyalty and assistance, this project could never have been completed. Cheers, Mike!
In fact, big love and huge thanks go to ALL contributors, family and friends, especially Haydn, and to all the great musicians and singers who gave of themselves so generously.
Here's to the next one...

Track Name: FALL IN LOVE
WHEN YOU'VE LOST ALL BELIEF IN YOUR ABILITIES
YOU'RE DOWN AND ON YOUR BENDED KNEES
YOU CAN'T FIND ANY CONFIDENCE
NOTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS MAKING SENSE
IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT WORKED FOR ME
TRY THIS PERFECT REMEDY.... AND

FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE

DON'T WORRY WHEN YOU FEEL UNSAFE
THIS HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH

WHEN THE LOVE LIGHT SHINES FROM IN HER EYES
HOW WONDERFUL LIFE FEELS!
WHEN YOU TUMBLE HEAD OVER HEELS.... AND

FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE

HOW WONDERFUL IT FEELS TO FALL IN LOVE!

EVERYBODY HAS A STORY TO TELL
OF A ROGUE OR A SWEET TONGUED JEZEBEL
EVEN CARY GRANT AND LORETTA YOUNG
IN 'BORN TO BE BAD' THEY BOTH GOT STUNG
AIN'T NOTHING EVER GONNA CHANGE A THING
WHEN FOOLISH HEARTS INTO THEIR STEP THEY PUT A SPRING.... AND

FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE

Track Name: BEIN' GREEN
IT’S NOT THAT EASY BEING GREEN
HAVING TO SPEND EACH DAY THE COLOUR OF THE LEAVES
WHEN I THINK IT COULD BE NICER BEING RED, YELLOW OR GOLD
OR SOMETHING MUCH MORE COLOURFUL LIKE THAT

IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN
IT SEEMS YOU BLEND IN WITH SO MANY OTHER ORDINARY THINGS
AND PEOPLE TEND TO PASS YOU OVER 'COS YOU'RE
NOT STANDING OUT LIKE FLASHY SPARKLES IN THE WATER
OR STARS IN THE SKY

BUT GREEN'S THE COLOUR OF SPRING
AND GREEN CAN BE COOL AND FRIENDLY-LIKE
AND GREEN CAN BE BIG LIKE AN OCEAN
IMPORTANT LIKE A MOUNTAIN
OH, AN' TALL LIKE A TREE

WHEN GREEN IS ALL THERE IS TO BE
IT CAN MAKE YOU WONDER WHY, BUT WHY, WONDER WHY?
WONDER, WHY I'M SO GREEN
BUT IT'S WHAT I WANT TO BE
Track Name: LIVING IN THE BUBBLE
VERSE 1
ALL THE BLOODY PREJUDICES WE GREW UP WITH
CAN NOW BE SEEN FOR WHAT THEY ARE
THE OH, SO MANY LIES WE JUST BELIEVED IN
HAVE MELTED IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH

CHORUS 1
WE’VE BEEN LIVING IN THE BUBBLE
LIVING IN THE BUBBLE
LIVING IN THE BUBBLE

VERSE 2
SO MANY PEOPLE SAY THEY HAVE THE ANSWERS
AND DISAPPEAR WHEN THINGS GET ROUGH
HOW MANY TIMES BEFORE WE WAKE UP TO IT
AND THAT IS THAT, IT’S UP TO US
CHORUS 2
WE’VE BEEN LIVING IN THE BUBBLE
LIVING IN THE BUBBLE
LIVING IN THE BUBBLE

MIDDLE 8
THE WIND OF CHANGE IS BLOWIN’
S’GETTIN’ STRONGER BY THE DAY
CAN YOU HEAR IT CALLIN’?
AND THE THINGS IT HAS TO SAY
THE WIND OF CHANGE IS BLOWIN’
SO SOFT IT’LL MELT YOUR HEART AWAY
GOT TO LISTEN CLOSELY
IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF TODAY

VERSE 3
FROM EVERYWHERE THERE IS A GREAT AWAKENING
AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE DECIDE
NOW IS THE TIME THAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER
AND PUT OUR DIFFERENCES ASIDE
Track Name: LEARNING CURVE

WE'RE ALL GROOVIN ON A LEARNIN' CURVE


EVERYBODY'S GOT THEIR OWN WAY TO SING
JUST GOTTA GET ON DOWN AND DO YOUR THING

GROOVIN’! GROOVIN’!


Y'GOTTA SHOOT FOR WHAT Y'KNOW YOU DESERVE
JUST KEEP A GROOVIN ON A LEARNIN CURVE
GROOVIN’! GROOVIN’!
WE'RE ALL GROOVIN ON A LEARNIN' CURVE
Track Name: IF I COULD ONLY...
IF I COULD ONLY
TURN BACK THE CLOCK
IF I'D KNOWN YOU'D BEEN LONELY BABY
I WOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR ROCK

IF I COULD TRAVEL
TO VENUS FROM MARS
I WOULD MAKE HEAVEN
A PLACE IN YOUR HEART

IF I COULD GATHER
ALL THE STARS IN THE SKIES
I'D WRAP THEM IN RAINBOWS
TO SHINE IN YOUR EYES

IF I'VE BEEN SELFISH, BABY
WELL, I GUESS I'M JUST A MAN
WHO TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
AN' TREATED YOU BAD

BUT THERE'S NO EXCUSES
SO WITH HAND ON MY HEART
HERE'S ONE GUY WHO CHOOSES
TO MAKE A NEW START

IF I COULD ONLY
TURN BACK THE CLOCK
IF I'D KNOWN YOU'D BEEN LONELY, BABY
I WOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR ROCK

IF I COULD TRAVEL
TO VENUS FROM MARS
I WOULD MAKE HEAVEN
A PLACE IN YOUR HEART
