Album features musicians Allan Taylor, Chris Jones, Derroll Adams, and Grischka Zepf.
"This recording began as a bonus CD to accompany Colour to the Moon in the special box edition, released in the year 2000. Colour to the Moon has remained in production, but the bonus CD, Behind the Mix was discontinued when the box edition sold out.
"We have decided to re-release this 'Behind the Mix' CD because so many people have asked for it to be available again. When the idea was first suggested to me I listened to it for the first time in almost sixteen years (I never listen to my CDs once they are released) and I realised that it is special for many reasons, but mainly because of the friends I worked with on it. What you hear on this CD is three musicians, Chris Jones on guitar, Grischka Zepf on bass and me on guitar and vocals, just having a good time in the studio playing a few songs.
"Chris played on many of my recordings and we also played a few concerts together, including one special one at The Kennedy Centre in Washington, DC in 2003. Chris is no longer with us as he died in 2005. Grischka and I occasionally worked together on some recordings and then, along with Lutz Möller on piano, we made one tour of Germany in 2001.
"Then there are a few anecdotes of my time with Alex Campbell followed by recollections of the times I spent with Derroll Adams, another dear friend and a great inspiration. I made a few programmes for the BBC in UK with various singer-songwriters, one of whom was Derroll. He and I recorded some songs together for BBC Scotland in Glasgow, and you will hear some of these songs on this recording. Derroll died on 6th February 2000." - Allan Taylor
