Long Way Out (album - 2003)

Long Way Out was James' first full-length CD release, a 60 minute album of 12 original songs. Recorded using modern digital multi-track studio technology, the songs on this album were recorded with no overdubs, just the warm, intimate sound of James' distinctive singing voice, an acoustic-guitar with occasional harmonica, and include several first-takes.

The original recordings were re-mastered in 2006, bringing out their detail and presence beautifully. The 2003 release has now been humanely deleted.

This album includes the track One Saturday, described by Woven Wheat Whispers as:

"a delightful tapestry in music and words and highlights his tremendous vocal ability. This is a track that deserves to widely heard by anyone with a love of classic contemporary folk and acoustic music."

Long Way Out as a CD (originally with 8-page booklets - now sold-out) costs £5 direct from James at a gig, or see opposite for other ways of getting hold of it.

"...the quality is simply stunning, being crystal clear but also very warm. The only comparison I can readily make, is to the voice of Tim Buckley, and this is something I do not suggest glibly."
