Since the Bully Wee Band reformed in 2004 they have, not surprisingly, added to their extensive 45 year repertoire, and this album is the result. 
It is the first time they have been in the studio as one unit in 35 years and the finished tracks demonstrate how they and their sound have matured over the years.

The latest album from Colin is another selection of songs carefully selected from his past and more recent repertoire.
They include covers of songs as far ranging as those from Sydney Carter, Arthur Alexander, Paul Rodgers and Tim Hardin. Also included is a new song from Colin's dear friend John Cunningham and the traditional Irish ballad Carrickfergus.
The album title track Way Below The Tide is a re-recording of Colin's self-penned song concerning the Scottish Great Silkie legend that, at certain times, seals may come ashore, remove their coats and take human form. Originally recorded by the Bully Wee Band on the Madmen of Gotham album, Colin felt it was time to reintroduce the song to the world and thus its inclusion on the album.
The album features some guest musicians in the shapes of Peter Knaggs and Steve Shorey on guitars, Marc Woodward on mandolin, John Cunningham on backing vocals and Colin's life partner Deborah Neal on accordion.

It seems that most performers reach a stage in their life when they get the urge to revisit and acknowledge their roots.

These are some of the songs Colin sang or heard other people sing, but never got the chance to record, way back when he first realised
there was more to music than the Beatles.
