TRACK BY TRACK, RON 1.CHARITY - One of the best of Ron's songs. Heard it a few years ago on his first, unissued CD. Love the structure and feel of it. Worth five stars on its' own. 2.HEART FULL OF LOVE - This one is new to me. Nice opening, Caribbean feel with a folksy influence. Nice. 3.THE BETTER HALF OF ME - Not heard this on before, either. Very folk inspired. A good solid love song for his missus. 4.VOICES ON THE WAVES - Nice warm feeling on this song. Good instrumentation. 5.LOST IN YOU - Piano led ballad, what Ron is good at. Beautiful lyrics and orchestration. 6.WEEKEND - Great song (only 'cos I co-wrote it) Royalties, Ron? 7.PORTRAIT - Another classic ballad from Ron. 8.GOODBYE SONG - Love this. Co-written with wife, Margaret. Great hook. Nice one, Ron. 9.SPECIAL ONE - Written for his daughter, Corrina, Ron pens a classic. 10.PIECES OF YOU - Well crafted. Nice ballad.Co-written with Ron's wife. 11.GOING BACK TO MY GLORY DAYS - We used to play this years ago. A rewrite of the lyrics gives it a new life. 12.BALLAD OF JANET AND JOHN - Another classic from our yesterdays. Redone brilliantly. I still play this occasionally.
What else can I say? Great Album. If there is a followup please include "Late for the bus" and "From England to New England", Ron.
