David Roth covers covers of folk classics and great writers including "Song For You Far Away" (James Taylor), "I Will" (Lennon/McCartney), "Blowin´ In The Wind" (Bob Dylan), "You've Got A Friend" (Carole King) and 'more pearls'.
The beautiful arrangements are vitalized by some well-known Stockfisch studio musicians. Among others: Chris Jones (guitars), Fiona Simpson and Roger Nicholls (backing vocals), Hans-Jörg Maucksch (fretless bass) as well as multi instrumentalists Siard de Jong and Beo Brockhause.
More pearls "came out of a casual conversation Günter and I had in early 2005. We were on another subject when he asked if Id ever considered making a collection of songs by other songwriters (evergreens, he called them). Truth is Id been thinking about it for years but had never really honed in on such a project...until that moment. Let me choose some songs I replied, and tell me what you think of the list. A few short weeks later I was back in Northeim at Stockfisch with Chris Jones."
"As I thought about what it was with these particular songs and writers that drew me near, I was also reminded where Id first heard each one and how theyd made their mark in my psyche and helped guide me down this path. All are joined with a thread that weaves compassion, empathy, longing, freedom, justice, wonder, reflection, peace, and humility. Though its been years since Ive played some, like cherished old friends theyve been exhilarating to revisit, relearn, rediscover, and gain new insight from." - David Roth
So Günter Pauler recorded David Roth performing a collection of famous and not that famous "evergreens" of the anglo-American songwriting: "Song For You Far Away" (James Taylor), "I Will" (Lennon/McCartney), "Blowin´ In The Wind" (Bob Dylan), "Streets Of London" (Ralph McTell), "You've Got A Friend" (Carole King) and 4 other pearls.
