NEW RECORDINGS OF THE CLASSIC STEVE HACKETT TRACK “SPECTRAL MORNINGS”
The project was the brainchild of ROB REED (of Magenta & Kompendium) who explains; “I’ve always loved the piece Spectral Mornings by Steve Hackett, (the classic instrumental from his 1979 album of the same name). It had a great guitar melody and thought it would be amazing to re-record with the addition of some lyrics. I contacted David Longdon from Big Big Train who I wanted to sing it. David wrote the lyrics and we did a demo, which sounded fantastic.
Please ""share"" guys and lets raise loads of money for a charity that doesnt get enough attention, yet affects so many people.
Heres the link for preorder for the physical EP. Download link will be available in a couple of weeks.
