TOR Records is delighted to be involved in the relaunch of this great album. Richard Riley is a highly accomplished writer and guitar player and this is his only solo album. The album was self financed by Richard and record in various locations in and around Bath/Bristol. He played in many local bands and was in Marc Almond's backing band. Musically, this a beautiful amalgam of The Beatles, ELO, Nick Drake and more. Great songs, all played and sung with passion. Sadly, Richard had a serious accident shortly after this album was released so it has gone mainly unnoticed for the past 9 years.
Here's a link to a track from the album. Sharpie Tattoo
Geoffrey Dolman - Static Caravan "There is good craft at work here"
Chris Twigger (Reviewer) : "Across the 10 tracks we have on this disc Richard comes across as an insightful and poetic lyricist. A couple of songs e.g. “Mr. X” reminded me of aspects of “The Wall” and “The Final Cut” by Pink Floyd. Reflection and soul searching permeate the lyrics and the musical arrangements perfectly complement his words. A very special LP indeed, by an artist who truly deserves re-discovery."
