Welcome to this – my 2008 CD album. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ian & Gerry King (of MSS Studios), for inviting me to record this CD for their own label. It has also given me much pleasure putting together the musical miscellany of wonderful items you hear – all played on my incredibly versatile Technics FA-1 organ.
All told the arranging and recording of the tracks took two whole months to complete – from mid-January in fact. All the items were recorded in the peace and tranquility of my music studio at home in Markfield, Leicestershire
I sincerely hope the results speak for themselves and that you enjoy listening as much as I did recording. Music for all tastes and most importantly… For Your Pleasure!
…Nicholas Martin (April 2008).
