Among the musicians magicians and technicians who have enhanced my material as it has made its way from basic acoustic recordings to

something more have been in no particular order: Brian McNeil,  producer, arranger and keyboard player of China Crisis;  Brian Young,

musician and owner of Cava Studios Glasgow and Geoff Allan,  superb sound engineer also from the same place some of the time; Fraser

Spiers,  renowned blues harp player;  Jennifer Clark, composer, arranger, producer & session musician; John Saich guitarist, sound

designer, producer and Mags Russell, composer, choreographer, photographer and producer of Wild Biscuit Music

More about those with known links can be found at, and


The photograph to the right is of Brian McNeill as a younger

man and (as I assume he still is) an incredibly senstiive

musician When I first encountered him he was working at Cava

Studios Glasgow and I continue to regret that he moved on

from there and, with a few exceptions, my songs no longer

benefitted from his arrangements

Others of the songs he arranged can be found in the material

which is on the SIX RE-ISSUES although more relevant to this

site is the track below entitled ROCK ME LIKE A CHILD 

He was also responsible for AS YOU WRAPPED THE

STRING AROUND ME which is the opening track on
