Ian has recently completed
a song with Jack Harris (pictured to the left), (Pyramania,
Day After Day, Dr Tarr backing vocals...) which was recorded
in Abbey Road in 1976 as a backing track but never had any overdubs
added. The basic track features Ian on guitar, David Paton on
bass, Stuart Tosh on drums and a piano solo by one Eric Woolfson!
It only re-emerged recently when Jack sent the track to Ians
studio. Ian first added the guitar solos and a saxophone section.
Then, on Sunday the 24th of June 2001, Jack came to the studio
and added the lead vocal, some vocal harmonies with his daughter,
while his son added a tambourine. We think this may be a World
record for the longest time taken by original artists between
recording a rhythm guitar part, then the guitar solo. The same
25-year gap applies to the vocal double track! Click the button
