Nobody’s Fault But Mine

         The original Transatlantic company went through such a series of changes that Private Eye saw fit to lampoon the situation – only it wasn’t a lampoon. But as sometimes happens the wreckage was washed ashore and a salvage operation got underway. This compilation was at the helm at the relaunching : a double CD made up of tracks – several previously unreleased – spanning the years 1966 to 2005.  The powers that be decided on the title with its obvious implications, which wasn’t entirely fair. I was aided and abetted at every turn. For me it feels a bit like looking through the wrong end of the telescope or De Selby’s sequence of mirrors. The scowly  young fellow on the cover is my son Joel, now well into his forties and still scowling.
