1997 saw the release of one of John Watts’ strongest guitar albums. The extremely tight three-piece line up with Phil Spalding and Steve Kelner was the perfect foil for him on  It was described as “the best set of narrative songs that Watts has produced so far.” Many of these tunes, such as ‘Angel of Gardenia’, are still popular in contemporary live performances. Watts chose to tour the album solo. This radical approach led to a series of interesting new contacts and some work with Alex Gifford of The Propellerheads, which took his career in a much more radical direction.
