Comin' off the Blues.

Sometime ago I heard a radio interview with Billy Bob Thornton.

He talked of his days on the road and why he chose to stop touring. 

I recall him saying that there was "...too many dark corners and dusty roads."

I scribbled it down and the song was written round it...playing on titles and names.

Ronnie Brown - Vocals & Harmonicas

Steve Dagleish - Acoustic Guitar

Ian Sidgwick - Piano, Keyboards and Vocal Harmonies

Red and Black Guitar.

Amsterdam is the setting. Rembrandt's palette was the inspiration, well that and a title given to me by Graham Brotton. Thanks to Graham for that and to Steve and Ian for their arrangements.

All songs written by Ronnie Brown except for

"When Squaddies Dream". Lyrics by Graeme Miles with kind permission of Annie Miles.
