British blues owes a lot to this legendary man called Roger Cotton, producer, song writer, well known musician of huge talent and great sensitivity (those of you who listen to this tremendous fantastic record will immediately realize what I mean). iA Long Way Backi is the first one he has recorded under his own name and includes fifteen excellent own songs. Roger also plays keyboards and guitar along the whole cd, to back a bunch of high quality bright British musicians like Buddy Whittington, Papa George, Marcus Malone, Paul Cox, Val Cowell, Fay Hallam and Alan Glen.
For some years Roger Cotton was member of Peter Greenis Splinter Group and he also has played with John Mayall, B.B. King, Santana and Buddy Guy to only mention four great aces. As a studio musician (he is the owner of Roundel studios) he has been responsible of some Paul McCartney, Eric Bibb, Dr. Feelgood and Peter Green recordings. In short words, it is an ambitious magnificent work that will surprise listeners much more they have expected.
The CD also includes a bunch of great musicians that give the best of themselves along the whole album.
