Neil Halstead has a new album out sometime soon, there's a taster mp3 called Paint a face doing the rounds at all the best mp3blogs if you'd care to look. Listening to it (and admiring Neil's impressive facial hair) reminded me of John Phillips' April Anne - the first track on his John the Wolfking of LA album. Recorded just after the Mamas and Papas split with steel guitarist Buddy Emmons and guitar legend James Burton this beautifully wistful album offers a mix of steel guitar, Elton-like piano parts, confused beautiful people and images of the sea.
Listen: John Phillips - April Anne
Listen John Phillips - Malibu People
