If I'm honest At The Water's Edge is far a from perfect album. It was done completely the wrong way round with me recording it at home straight-off (but mastered in California) whereas I should have gone out and played live and met some musician s and then gone into a studio. Hindsight is a great thing!
In spite of me looking back and wishing I'd done things differently, At The Water's Edge has had quite a lot of praise. In particular Something Wild seems to be a favourite and has had some airplay and indeed has even been used as the backing for an advert.
Having played live now for over a year I know the songs stand up and indeed have grown and evolved. At some point I would like to record the songs again in the way that I think they now deserve. I guess At The Water's Edge CD can be viewed as a deluxe demo (only 1000 copies have been pressed) and an indication of where I'm headed.
