Live in Féricy. the 2019 live album is
available. just 100 limited edition !
Recorded live in Fericy on November 17, 2018 by Pierre Sampagnay.
mix, mastering done by Henry Padovani, under the friendly guidance of Gwynn Mathias.
Live in Fericy. But, what a great evening! All simple but full. And Pierre, who was doing the sound, had the great idea of recording it. The idea was simply to keep a memory of it and so, he just plugged on the back of the mixing desk a recorder. Something he had handy, an mp3.
But what a great idea! All simple but genius. Because not only we have a souvenir but because the good intentions are always the ones that count and with very simple ideas, put one after another, we build a lovely world. And since the good live albums are the ones that reflect best a good atmosphere, I m thinking to myself that we too could put out a ' Live in Fericy', without being ashamed of it.
what you get is a real live album, no frills, just as it was, acoustic, a good vibe, 17 tracks, including some new and unreleased songs, an acoustic version of Next to you, a niffty blues instrumental, and even Opera!!
Sure, an Mp3, just like that, on the back of a mixer, is not what you would normally do. But, Us, we do as we feel, and nothing says that with a mobile studio costing 30 millions and a crowd of operators, we would have done better. Just like the evening, all simple, but with a big heart.

I LOVE TODAY. That is the title of my last solo album. It came out on september 2, 2016.
It was about time as well. I agree. But, we took the time a good album has to take.
It was recorded, all in analog, as we wanted it. We recorded 2 songs at 811 studios, in Horsham. Analog also, of course. Mark St John played drums, and engineered (!!), Dick Taylor played bass, Samuel Brothers electric guitar and i played acoustic and sung. The other tracks were recorded at the Smoke House studios in london. The Smoke house is an analog studio that has just the right atmosphere for what we wanted to do.
Produced by Mark St John, the concept was to capture the performance of a an intimate acoustic show, like the kind of stuff i ve been doing lately......
