Product Description

Six tracks, Twenty-five minutes. These songs were recorded in the hallway at Southern Studios in London by the esteemed Harvey Birrell in January 2005. Simple, unadorned stories from an honest heart.  800 pressed on red vinyl and 200 on green.

I think pretty much everyone who has had the pleasure of seeing William play will agree about one thing: he is an unexpected revelation. When he opens his mouth and sings, out pours a gravelly, world-weary voice, belying his obvious youth... and the words he sings are strong, heartfelt words constructed of harsh experience and dark days walking an uncertain path. The revelation about William is how he seems to reach out to everyone and strike a chord down deep. I have had the pleasure of seeing William silence rooms of people from all walks of life... from 4 months old to 60 years old... everyone finds something about William that they can relate to.

And so it is an honour and a pleasure to have had William visit our studio and do what he is so damn good at - just playing a few songs - simple, unadorned, great stories from the heart. I hope that you all will enjoy the pleasure of William's company in your homes, as much as we have enjoyed all of the time we've had in his company.

These songs were recorded in the hallway at Southern Studios in London by the esteemed Harvey Birrell in the month of January in the year 2005.

"This is American folk music stripped to its basics but freed of any stultifying reverence. Whitmore writes originals which sound timeless in a voice which doesn't fit his comparative youth." - Wire
