Notes & Credits

The CD book contains the lyrics for the songs on the album.


This album was recorded live during a 6-week tour of Germany in the spring of 1994, I would like to express my thanks to all the people who were involved in this tout and in the recording of this album: Davey Tulloch and Wolfgang Diekmann for their wonderful playing and companionship; Peter Cronemeyer, my fabulous manager and instigator; Ulli Bögershausen, founder of Laika Records for his dreams and his encouragement: Andreas Torkler, and his team (Andreas Bittel and Frank Mestars) for making such a beautiful recording (almost an impossibility, considering the physicality and the theatricality of our show, and the difficulties of recording a harp!): to Thorsten Schmidt and Andrea Engels for creating a “home away from home” for the band during our rehearsals and for their talents as writer and photographer; and to the firm of KVA Kiel for providing us a great rehearsal space yet again this year: to Michael Skrzypczak, our road manager (and possibly the best driver in Germany) and most of all to Stephen Powell, my inspiration and comfort, without whom the notes and words would be hollow, Without these people this album would not exist,

I also want to thank my wonderful crew in the USA, who held down the home front and sent encouraging faxes just when I needed them: Stephanie Maillet Zand (my right hand), James Power Kilcoyne and Catharine David — because going on adventures is meaningless unless there is a home and people you love to return to,

Thanks also to the fans who cheered us and the promoters, writers, and television and radio people who helped us fill the concert halls, Special thanks to
Ruth Lemke for her support, to Torsten Dodillet for his beautiful photographs and to all the others whose energy fills my music,
