He also made a fine album with Rick van der Linden of Trace - Wild Connections.

Definitely worth seeking out on Spotify

Highly recommended

British cover is better.





Still can't make my mind up about the cockney intro - can find it irritating, other times the sheer sound of the accent amuses me.



Love the guitar work, yet again.
