That personally, I think Nick has taken an ill-advised step backwards. I thought Miracles was almost indistinguishable from the very early stuff. And after Bloodsongs, where is the sense in that? The production on BS was immaculate and the songs and performance were peerless. As Nick was producer, I have to ask why he wanted to go back to the accoustic-led studio album? The whole point of multi-track recording is that it allows you to do things you can't do live? I know most of you will disagree, and that's fine. I still love Nick Harper; the man, his music have been a big presence in my life. But I do know a missed chance when I see one. PS: Sorry about being rude over the new forum. Miss the old one is all. See you round.
