Places, where people come and people go Places, where people live and people love Places, where people fight and people die Places where people laugh and people cry Talk to me about your places, where do you want to be? Explain to me your situation, tell me how it feels Places, will they ever be the same? Places, all those lives forever changed Places, all is still and all is quiet Places, everything will be alright Talk to me about your places, where do you want to be? Explain to me your situation, tell me how it feels A cleaner world for living in if that’s the way it goes A safer place for children and parents I suppose If you don’t want to wind up dead Just stay safe at home instead If you don’t want to wind up dead Just be safe and stay home instead If you don’t want to wind up dead Just stay safe at home instead If you don’t want to wind up dead Just stay safe

about

The Crawdaddy Club Richmond presents Songs of Isolation

In the early days of Covid 19 and the lockdown I had the germ of an idea inspired by my friend and musician Adam Norsworthy. He had sent out a message to musos on Facebook to see who might be interested in contributing to a song. He had an instant response and the different musicians all recorded their bits remotely and sent it to Adam to splice together. The result was Isolation Blues, a cracking recording which is featured on this album. This triggered an idea in my head that we could take this a stage further by creating a virtual album, and after talking initially to Adam we asked Mark Ede (BigIam) to join us with a view to challenging friends and contacts in our music community to write and record a song related to the lockdown. In the meantime Judy Astley volunteered her music producer/engineer husband Jon (The Who, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Jools Holland to name just a few) to work his mastering magic to create a fabulous one-off album. The result is an album that digs deep into the sadness and difficulties that we all face during these uncertain times. The music mirrors the feelings that only excellent musicians & songwriters can express in song. It is a present-day history of our times.

We are deliberately releasing this as a charity album now to allow time for the giving frenzy to have died down and hope that we’ll stand out from the many other excellent earlier initiatives.

Everyone involved has generously donated their songs and time freely in aid of our chosen charity, + Heroes, a small charity set up by NHS staff for NHS staff helping them obtain much needed PPE, childcare and food as well as financial and emotional support.

As we have no costs every penny will go to + Heroes. You can now download the album here on BandCamp. We ask for a minimum donation of £8.00, but hope that those of you who can afford it will give more generously.

Thank you to all the talented, brilliant musicians who contributed to this very special charity album.
