On my own now. No longer CBS’s baby. They had become tired of the obstacles. They read laziness into what was mental ill health. They did not understand why I seemed to want to scupper the commercial success I had. I began writing with Pete Glenister. A guy who had a short stint as guitarist on the raindancing tour and who was ‘let go’. Pete and I make a good team. He is a gentleman and a scholar and a great writer. We were excited by each others’ ideas. I suggested perhaps that he produce me. Muff Winwood AandR told me to do what I liked. I did.
In making Hoodoo, we were left to our own devices and found some passion and aggression again. It is not a flawless record…but I know of few that are… and none that I have made… but it became a road that lead to my understanding myself much better. It has some songs on it that I am very proud of and favourites, It wont be long, This House, Hoodoo and chunks of Footsteps.
Mixed reviews. The record company were disheartened by the decline in sales and lost interest and faith. I was just getting back it again.
