Peter Bruntnell – Ringo Woz Ere

Seems ages since I’ve had the pleasure of catching a Peter Bruntnell live performance,  so I’ll have to make do with his recorded output and the good news is there’s a new album out following on from last years excellent Black Mountain UFO you can pick up the CD Ringo Woz Ere direct from the man himself here.

The usual high standard expected of Mr Bruntnell is maintained, there are seven tracks co-written with Bill Ritchie including two great reworked versions of tracks that appeared on Black Mountain UFO , Maryanne and Looking for Allison (with James Walbourne playing twelve string and bottle neck guitar) there’s one other Bruntnell original and a great selection of covers including my favourite on the album the wonderful Going Back (Gerry Goffin and Carole King),  love the way it fades towards a close then opens back out again (beats The Byrds version hands down).

Reaching back to the 60’s again there’s a take on The Beatles (George Harrison) Think For Yourself  from the classic Rubber Soul album and on the subject to classic albums Bruntnell picks a track from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Five Years to close the album, add in Second Lovers Song from the legend that is Townes van Zandt and you have a wonderful mix of the borrowed, old and new.
