After three records and one or two EPs ANTHONY RENOLDS' band JACK split and he released the wonderful "British Ballads" in 2007 as solo artist.
Compared with JACK it has more of some kind of story teller feeling, less of the band power punch in the face.
His voice is marvellous. Unique. Outstanding.

From the album "AV 1" from Phil Brown and Dave Allison.
"Piano" featured MARK HOLLIS hidden under the B-side-inspired pseudonym John Cope and managed to be deliberate without being frustrating, unsettling but never futuristic, and an enduringly eerie achievement.
The song appeared later on the album "Missing Pieces" that features the 3CD-Single Box "After The Flood" plus "Piano".
To the immortal memory of great MARK HOLLIS.

This is a personal compilation that I did in 2009 and that is still one of my favourites.
Nothing much to say as I really love this band. It was a companion for many years. When they were at their best and after they split. The songs never lost the magic and spirit for me.
I hope you love the compilation as much as I do.
