First Time on Vinyl Since 1980!
Highly Sought-After Album on Double LP!
Remastered with Love by The Carvery, London!

A wonderful album full of Balearic vibes, funky riffs and mellow moments, originally released in 1980.

BBE Music are excited to announce this highly sought-after album titled Will & James Ragar.

James and Will Ragar hail from Louisiana, where their early education into music began. At a young age they moved to New Orleans - where they heard live jazz for the first time. This inspiration is demonstrated through their free approach to this album.

Their natural evolution through the Louisiana club scene saw them develop and hone their talents of adding that southern swag to covers they did, almost making them their own.

Will & James Ragar is a blend of acoustic and electric tones, carefully and cohesively put together by the brothers.

"As the Day Grows Tired" is the first song on the album and one of the first songs James wrote. The theme for "She's Laughter" is about returning home to someone you love and features a heavy guitar solo. "My Shining Sun" has an unusual jazz form and is an ode to the joy of playing music. "Don't Wish'" was inspired by a jazz chord progression that was a favorite, James played the solo on a pearwood soprano recorder. Gary Roberts played percussion on the session and also played the flute on "Just a Wanderer."
