Early Alchemy - recorded in 1980/81 and released on vinyl it was sold by Nick (Webb) to Alchemy’s then record label GRP in 1991; with the money we went to HansaHaus Studios in Bonn and got the incomparable Klaus Genuit to re-master the existing tracks and record four more from that era. Those tracks included my composition Daybreak which became the title track of my first solo recording in 1983. The slide show comprises photos taken by Eric Lochran in the eighties and a very unusual version of Casino made at Strawberry 2 in Manchester which helped get Alchemy their American record deal but was never released.
