Product Description

Ian Prowse, often called the "Scouse Springsteen", is best known for his work as main man with the groups, Pele (1990s) and the 7-piece group, Amsterdam (2000s). One of his most famous songs, Amsterdam's 'Does This Train Stop On Merseyside', was a huge favourite of the late DJ John Peel - he featured the song on his last ever 'Festive Fifty' and it has been well documented that it often reduced him to tears on air. The song has gone on to be covered by many others, including Christy Moore, Miles Hunt and Ian McNabb. In recent years, Ian Prowse has completed a couple of degrees, "just for the hell of it" and the album is, in part, inspired by his degree in Modern History and Masters in Irish music, for which he wrote his thesis on Irish Music. He has also become a father for the first time. 'Who Loves Ya' Baby' will be supported by a series of live dates in the UK, spanning March through May. The shows will be a mix of solo appearances alongside shows with Amsterdam, with whom he still performs.

One day in the future, when the scales fall from the mass populace's ears and they begin to appreciate "Popular Music" for the craft, passion and talent that goes into it rather than accepting the manufactured crud that currently is force-fed into their ears, Ian Prowse will finally be up there and get the recognition he has deserved for over 20 years in Pele and Amsterdam....
Until that day, folks like me will keep banging the drum for Ian and, few though we may be when compared to the mass produced Artists' fans, we will keep enjoying both his recorded material and, more importantly, his live performances. This album beautifully shows Ian's wonderful musicianship AND his passion (not only for great music but for life - and highlighting both it's rights and wrongs through his songs).
It's purile to try to label music as a specific genre - particularly in the case of someone like Ian Prowse. What kind of music is it? Simply amazing music! This is his first "solo" album but the trademark tunes that have been part of his back catalogue with Pele and Amsterdam are very evident here - albeit if it feels abit more intimate without the full band on this album. The opener - God and Man - really is a wonderful tune and is an instant classic to go along with Raid The Palace, Megalomania, Does This Train Stop On Merseyside and (my fave!) Takin' On The World. There's real diversity in these songs. Did It For Love really is a different direction for Ian - with a real groove to it; whilst the harrowing visions of a poem about a young man's experiences in WW1 are beautifully brought to life through Ian's music in Lest We Forget ( a bit of a bookend from Pele's Green Fields Of France, a B-Side from over 20 years' ago).

Been a long time in the making but so worth waiting for. As always Prowsie sings from the heart, that is a given, but this album is so much more. The full Amsterdam experience is here, with songs to show their diverse musical talents. We are taken on a journey that covers colonialism, revolutionaries, racial prejudice and rejoicing in becoming a parent. Listen and enjoy, then go and see the live show!

I have to say what a great album this is. I've seen Ian many times in and around Liverpool, and he puts everything into what he does.
This album has been long awaited and every song resonates the passion Ian has for the music he performs. For me the stand out tracks are 'I did it for love', 'Anger Mountain', and the anti war song, 'Lest we forget'.
The songs have a story behind them and its well worth looking into their background. Ian loves his adopted city of Liverpool and its history, and this shines through.
All in all a fine singer songwriter who is well worth listening too, and seeing live, you won't be disappointed.

Another quality exhibition of songwriting from Prowse, songs of getting through life in today's world. Lest we forget is almost a classic war poem. All songs are considered, but with enough of a pop element to hook you in.
