Man, Myth & Music
A compilation compiled by John West, featuring songs from various sessions. Recorded between 1992 and 1995.
"We used to write songs together and record them on his 8-track. We had some pretty good ideas and these recorded songs became known as 'The Lost World of Twist album'. It was not the World of Twist, but Tony's was the voice of the group and we could not decide upon another name for the band, so we stuck with the original. These recordings were never lost, the fact was that no-one would give us a record deal. It was excruciatingly frustrating for us both, since the songs were still being written and were fantastic and unique. The intention was to call the album 'Man, Myth and Music'. It had taken us from 1992 until 1995 to come up with enough songs to make the unreleased album. 'Man, Myth and Music' ended with an epic version of 'MacArthur Park' recorded in Macclesfield during 1994. Tony once described this song as one of the most complex and challenging pieces of music that he has ever recorded." - John West
