 Cool Covers - Colin Reece - Latest solo CD 2015

A new album of songs that Colin has always wanted to record.
From Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Mark Knopfler and Paul McCartney
to songs he used to sing way back in his days of floor-spotting around
the London and Kentish folk scene.  This is a fine collection of songs
given Colin's unique treatment and arrangement, and on which he sings
all the lead and backing vocals and plays acoustic and electric rhythm & lead guitars, mandolin & octave mandolin, banjo, piano & keyboards, bass and drums.  Deborah Neal is featured on accordion as is Steve Shorey on
electric guitar.
Not to be missed.

The track listing is:

                              1  You Ain't Going Nowhere (Bob Dylan) - Featuring Deborah Neal
                              2  Late In The Evening (Paul Simon)

Good and Plenty - Colin Reece - Latest solo CD 2013

With brand new recordings of three originals from previous, now unavailable, vinyl albums, four new originals and four covers of songs by Steve Earle, Tom Waits , Bruce Springsteen and Mark Knopfler, this new album is a list of songs that would probably best be described as a mixed bag consisting of past, present and personal favourites.

The album features guest appearances by my long term partner Steve Shorey on magnificent electric lead guitar and the beautiful dulcet tones of the equally beautiful and dulcet Karen Ann Hunter on harmony vocals.

Also featured is my late great mate John 'Smudger' Smith with some cameo appearances on mandolin, fiddle and guitar which were lifted from some recordings we made together a few years ago.

The track listing is:

                              1  So Many Times
                              2  Execution Row
                              3  Land of Good and Plenty
                              4  No Surrender
                              5  Pilgrim
                              6  I Let Me Down
                              7  Running Away
                              8  How Long/That's Where I Belong
                              9  Love's Never Powerless
                            10  I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You
                            11  Defending

 Revisited - Colin Reece - Solo CD 2013

It seems that most performers reach a stage in their life when they get the urge to revisit and acknowledge their roots.

This is a newly recorded album of songs I sang or heard other people sing, but never got the chance to record, way back when I first realised there was more to music than the Beatles.

The track listing is:

                                           Poor Wayfaring Stranger
                                           2  Peggy Gordon
                                           3  The Ballad Of Seth Davy
                                           4  Step It Out Mary
                                           5  Like The Snow
                                           6  Fiddler's Green
                                           7  Portland Town
                                           8  The Parting Glass

The front cover is an interesting picture of the King's Head Hotel in Rochester, Kent and as such gives a 'nod' to the old Wish It Was A Brewery Folk Club of the 70s and 80s, which was the time and place I first learned to love these songs.

  Red Wing - Colin Reece - Solo CD 2011

First release of original material for ten years.
Nine previously unreleased tracks and seven re-arranged and re-recorded
songs from the earlier days.  All brand new 2011 recordings.

The track listing is:

                    1 Red Wing intro                    9 The Madmen Of Gotham
                    2 CQ Prison Blues                 10 The Same Old Bandit
                    3 Let The Truce Begin          11 Rain Tyres And Footsteps
                    4 Southern Counties             12 Christmas In Copenhagen
                    5 What's The Matter             13 At The End Of The Day
                    6 Wozzaccurin                     14 Take Your Time
                    7 Appreciation                     15 Sad And Lonely Clown
                    8 An Island To Yourself        16 Red Wing Outro

The album features some of the best players and friends I’ve ever had the privilege of working with.  They are Ian Cutler on electric violin, Fergus Feely on octave mandolin, Steve Shorey on electric and acoustic lead guitar, the sadly missed John ‘Smudger’ Smith on electric lead guitar, David ‘Rudgey’ Rudge on harmonica and Lindsey Collard (aka the Torbados Girl), Karen Hunter and Drew Millin on backing vocals.

 

I’m particularly happy about the fact that I managed to rescue some recordings my late mate Smudger and I made a couple of years ago.  I took the solos he did on those recordings, freshened them up a bit and mixed them into the tracks on Red Wing, so the old sod is still playing from beyond the grave as it were.  Smudger lives on.

 

The tune Red Wing itself is taken from a song written way back at the beginning of the 20th Century about a young Red Indian maid which I have used to top and tail a song I wrote a long time ago about Charlie Chaplin called Sad and Lonely Clown (the last song on the album).  The reason being that during the First World War the song was parodied with the words;

 

When the moon shines bright on Charlie Chaplin,

His boots are cracking

From want of blacking

And his little baggy trousers they need mending

Before we send him to the Dardanelles

All songs written by Colin and once again all brand new 2011 recordings.
