full vk


Reissue of ultra-rare German pressing (1972, Hansa Records) for this eclectic musician of Amen Corner fame well-known for his long time collaboration with Eric Clapton. Still using the moniker of the recently defunct Fairweather (after their only 1971 album), Andy Fairweather Low put out this rare prog-folk oriented project…..~


The second (last) album of the Welsh band, created by former members of the band “Amen Corner”. After the dissolution of the band Andy Fairweather-Low started a successful solo career, worked with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Roger Waters … Blue Weaver joined Strawbs, worked in session with Mott The Hoople, Pet Shop Boys, Bee Gees …~


The seven million people who bought Eric Clapton’s Unplugged album and the countless more who saw the MTV Unplugged TV show experienced the work of Andy Fairweather Low, who served as Clapton’s backup guitarist/vocalist. But probably few in that giant audience knew that Fairweather Low had once been a teen idol and had an extensive recorded catalog in groups and as a solo star. Born in Cardiff, Wales, Fairweather Low formed Amen Corner in the mid-‘60s, for which he served as lead singer. The group scored six U.K. hits from 1967 to 1969, the biggest of which was the number one “(If Paradise Is) Half as Nice.” Its success put Fairweather Low’s attractive face on the bedroom walls of teenage girls all over Britain. Amen Corner broke up at the end of the '60s and evolved into the more progressive Fair Weather, which scored a hit with “Natural Sinner” in 1970, but broke up in 1971. Fairweather Low retired for several years, but returned as a solo artist in 1974 and made a series of albums through 1980, reaching the U.K. Top Ten with the singles “Reggae Tune” and “Wide Eyed and Legless.” Gradually, however, he began to work as a sideman to more prominent British musicians, notably ex-Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters, and with the ARMS benefit group in 1987. He toured Japan with George Harrison and Eric Clapton in 1991 and has since been part of Clapton’s backup band. Fairweather Low began touring with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings and, in 2006, hit the road again with Waters for the Dark Side of the Moon Tour….by…William Ruhlmann…~
