RICHARD AND AUDREY RILEY | OH SARAH
CAT. NUMBER: AR 007
LABEL: AR RECORDS
Brother and sister, Richard and Audrey Riley, recorded in live takes during one session in Rutland. The two songs, taken from a set of four, recorded over a few days in 2013, recording to capture the moment. No computers, no editing. For the b side they are joined by Nick Allum on drums and JJ Quick on bass. After 30 or so years in the rock industry, too busy playing for otherpeople to actually work together, Audrey and Richard finally came together to record, because there was an opportunity to, and Richard wrote four songs specifically,intended as ‘duets’, with no intention to release. But three years later, a few people have listened, and encouraged, to at least let these two become available on AR Records. Continuing the philosophy of the label, the catalogue number, appropriately 07, and sleeve image, found themselves.
