Youngs, Richard: Arrow LP (Preserved Sound, U.K.)
Richard Youngs: Arrow LP (Preserved Sound)
We currently have only five copies of this limited edition of 300, hand-assembled and numbered LPs. We are ordering more copies from the U.K. label to distribute in the U.S. so if you are interested please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a copy once these five are sold and we'll contact you when the new batch arrives. We will probably order as many as our customers request since international shipping is expensive.
Recorded especially for Preserved Sound in Hebden Bridge, Arrow is the sound of Richard Youngs alone at the piano,
embellished with sparse drums and an old organ. This collection of solo improvisations is all about capturing the
moment – that piano and that afternoon in Hebden Bridge.
“I sat down at the piano and just played,” says Richard. “No preconceptions, nothing worked out. I wasn't trying to
achieve anything other than to enjoy playing the piano.”
“There was also an organ in the room, so there are touches of that. I then took these back to Glasgow and knocked
it into shape – a few overdubs, nothing drastic.”
Arrow is Richard Youngs’ second album on Preserved Sound. The album is a limited edition,
hand-assembled and numbered.
