Product Description

CD Description

Cherry Red is proud to release the sixth solo album by Status Quo keyboard player and multi-instrumentalist Andy Bown. Entitled Unfinished Business, the album features ten new tracks and is his first solo album in over 30 years. Unfinished Business is produced by Mike Paxman and features contributions from the likes of Henri Spinetti [Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Katie Melua], Mick Rogers [Manfred Manns Earth Band] and Trevor Bolder [David Bowie, Uriah Heep]. He continued an intermittent solo recording career, whilst starting to work with Status Quo in 1976, first as a session musician, and then as a full time member, recording Rockin' All Over The World with the band in 1978. He plays keyboards, guitar and harmonica with Status Quo to this day and is an integral part of the band, having co-penned many well known Quo songs, most prominently the group's hits Whatever You Want, Again and Again and the 1988 hit Burning Bridges which, re recorded, went on to reach No.1 in the charts as Manchester United Football Clubs anthem.

About the Artist

Andy has a rich musical heritage, having worked with Peter Frampton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Halliday, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Tim Hardin, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, Lesley Duncan, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Status Quo and many, many more. He was also a member of ultimate 70s pop/rock band, Judas Jump (opening The Isle of Wight Festival 1970) and he also appeared with the cult folk band Storyteller. He played keyboards for Peter Frampton in the early 1970s, switching to bass for several tours after Rick Wills departed the band. Andy was the surrogate Roger Waters during Pink Floyds The Wall tour of 1980 and 81 and he also played Pink Floyd's The Final Cut album and Roger Waters subsequent release Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking.

Well, he's left it a while for album number six, because it's over thirty years since solo album number five arrived, "Good Advice". Of course, he's been busy with his main job in the Status Quo for quite some time, and inbetween he tinkled ivories for Pink Floyd and Roger Waters. But he's found time to put this together, and it's really rather good.

His solo material always veered between the whimsical and the heartfelt, and that's something that hasn't changed, as you will realise from the opener, which tells the tale of an Eberdein nicht oot wi' Roy Wood in a curry house. Hence 'Ruby And Roy'. It's not the only autobiographical song on offer, with 'I Was There When The Lights Went On' chipping in with some tales of playing with Jerry Lee Lewis and opening up Live Aid, amongst others. He then proceeds to drop as many names as humanly possible in the space of one song.

Mr Bown isn't the most technically proficient of singers, but his idiosyncratic voice can carry a tune along, and he's enlisted some seventies style chick backing singers to help along on the choruses. A lot of the music veers towards the seventies as well, but that's only to be expected, and I ain't complaining at the bluesy rock stylings of 'Tick My Box', the reflective look back at life, 'A Good Innings' and the chipper 'Right As Ninepence'. The album also sounds great, thanks to the production work of Quo / Judie Tzuke fella, Mike Paxman, and it even features the ever pleasurable bass guitar pluckings of Uriah Heep bass player, Trevor Bolder.

It's a wee cracker of an album, one that gets better with every play, and one which I will be playing for a while to come.

An excellent album. Being an avid Quo fan I purchased this more out of curiosity than knowledge of what I was purchasing. It is not Quo although there are some riffs almost sneaking in there. This is a 70's style blues album with some very tongue in cheek tracks.

This album most definitely grows on you and you can't help but singing along to a few of them. When first purchased I would have given this a 3 or 4 (with my Quo ears on) now it's 5, that's how it grows on you.
