What we used to call an EP - five tracks, one of which is a more mellow remix of the title track. As a recent dad (of six months) my heart warmed to the subject matter of the main song. Paul has created a little story/song about his little lad and the miracle of his arrival. All done in a very quiet, laid back style - you can imagine him singing it to the boy in question whilst the latter is sound asleep (ahhhh). The other songs are more, errrr, rocky - a standard 12 bar "Be Good To Me Baby" and a smartly lyricced "In The West". The arrangements are done simply, allowing Paul's words to come through. Words are obviously what most care has been taken on (like all good songwriters). So take a bit of Bob Dylan, mix in some Charlie Peacock and you're not a million miles away.
