This Hour

 

 

The Recording, The Players and Production

 

The bulk of the recording for this album took place in London with the exception of the title track (This Hour) that was recorded at Crystal Studios in Portsmouth, and some vocals and guitar recorded at Bosstown studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

The root band that I work with is as follows:

Danny lays down some groove pig skins 'THIS HOUR'

Danny Kelly on Drums and percussion

Paul 'Me Laddo' Diffin on bass of many shades

 

Nick Evans lays down some sweet steel, while Chris Bostock and Steve Jackson (who mixed THIS HOUR) look on.Nick 'Ruby' Evans on guitar, steel, banjo, mandolin .... shall I go on!

 

With myself on vocals and guitar.

 

It is the above line up that you will hear on most of the recordings that I intend to release through this web site. However, on the version of the album titled 'THIS HOUR' that I recorded for M&G Records, I was very fortunate to get the chance to record with three members of Ian Dury's Blockheads: Johnny Turnbull on guitar, Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Monti on Drums. Along with Volker Janssen of Spear of Destiny on keyboards and the fantastic fiddling of the one and only Bob Loveday. Alan Shacklock also played some superb guitar and helped a lot with the pre-production.

The (for me) magical union with the Blockheads was brought about by my co-producer Chris Bostock, one of the founder members of Jo Boxers. Along with the engineering talents of Darren Alison (of Devine Comedy fame) I believe we made a bloody good record that is timeless and will one day be recognised as such.

The current line up

What the critics say............

"... one thing is certain Clint is not only a quality singer / songwriter but also an equally good musician and producer."
