After 10 album releases Reg Meuross has returned to the solo format which inspired him to write and sing in the first place. December is a collection of 10 of the most beautiful songs which go straight to the heart.
Many will know award winner Reg for the extraordinary intimacy of his live solo performances, and it’s the countless requests at these unique events for ‘the one that sounds just like what we’ve just heard’ that have inspired the production of this distinctive and entirely solo album of new songs.
On the 3rd of December Reg drove to London with his newly restored 1944 Martin guitar on a promise. That promise was to repay the kindness of various friends and supporters who had helped in bringing that sweet little instrument back from San Jose to the workshop of the master luthier, Stuart Palmer, in Doncaster. The moment he held that lovingly restored guitar in his hands, Reg set about fulfilling his promise by writing an entirely new collection of songs on it, and it was these which he brought to his great friend, the drummer and recording engineer, Roy Dodds’ Kitchen Floor Studio in White City. Over two days Reg recorded straight to mic with no overdubs or studio trickery.
This is the sound of beautifully crafted songs in their purest, most original and definitive form. One man – who just happens to be ‘one of the finest songwriters this country has produced’ [Mike Harding] – and his guitar.
