Finally, after six years, my first solo album A LIKENESS OF YOU is back in my clutches. And you can now purchase the album in THE ORIGINAL SONG ORDER I INTENDED.
So where has the album been? It’s a long story, and finger-pointing won’t get us anywhere but, in short, owing to a clerical error and an erroneous clerk at one of my former labels, A LIKENESS OF YOU disappeared into the digital ether, never to be seen again.
I apologise if, in the past years, you have purchased a digital copy of A LIKENESS OF YOU believing that your hard-earned would end up in the pocket of the artist. Sadly not the case. Since the gate was left open in 2006, and the album ran away, I have not seen a sales figure or a dollar from any digital sales.
Nevertheless, the prodigal album has returned and you can now buy A LIKENESS OF YOU digitally, and safely, at the independent musicians music store, Bandcamp, here danwarner.bandcamp.com
The great thing for me about A LIKENESS OF YOU being up on Bandcamp is that I can present the album in the original song order (which was changed at the last minute before pressing – another long story).
Anyway, many of you will know that A LIKENESS OF YOU is a concept album of sorts. It is a portrait of a person, and a relationship, where the first half of the record is experience, and the second half, memory. Side One is more immediate – songs in a major key. Side Two is more reflective, minory…a definite chronology runs through the record. I just reckon when you hear A LIKENESS OF YOU open with ‘READY OR NOT’, the whole album makes more sense.
Anyway, I’m extremely glad the little tyke is back in the fold. PASTURES is my favourite song.
