Play show or right-click to download Show 7 - Woolly Wolstenholme Triple-Shot

As promised in TFL#6, this is an extra show to showcase three tracks from "Grim", the new album by Woolly Wolstenholme's Maestoso.

Woolly was the keyboard player and a founder member of Barclay James Harvest. He left the band in 1979, had a short solo career and then left the music scene for organic farming.

In 1998, he made a welcome return to play on John Lees' solo album "Nexus" when BJH went on 'sabbatical' (in reality the band were no more), then toured with John on the 'Revival' tour. A planned second album was shelved, so Woolly released the first 'Maestoso' album, "One Drop In A Dry World" in May 2004, a raw live CD "Fiddling Meanly", closely followed by "Grim".

The album reunites the original 1980 Maestoso band of Woolly, Steve Broomhead (guitars) and Kim Turner (drums), along with regular bassist Craig Fletcher.

Woolly has just started work on the next John Lees' Barclay James Harvest album, which will be followed by a tour.

Tracks played:

  • Coming Soon To A Cinema Near You
  • Through A Storm
  • A Lark

Huge thanks go to Woolly and the band for the incredible music, Vicky at Eclectic Discs for giving me permission to play the tracks and Keith & Monica Domone of the International BJH Fan Club for the best website and fan community on the web.

If you want to get a hold of the CD before it hits the shops in November, you can order it from Keith & Monica here.
