Acoustic Alchemy - Acoustic Alchemy - Early Alchemy

AAを創って12年後、ニックはGRPにAAが初期にレコーデイングしたアルバムの
スペシャル・リミックス盤をリリースしたいと持ちかけます。
グレッグに会う前のナイロン弦ギタリストのパートナー、サイモン・ジェイムスとレコーディングしたアルバムです。
GRPにOKをもらい、マスターテープのほこりをはらい、ドイツのボンに
ジョン・パーソンズとエンジニアのクラウス・ゲヌイトと行きます。
#3.7.13.14の4曲は1990年にドイツのハンザ・ハウス・スタジオでレコーディング、
他10曲が1982年&1983年にロンドンでレコーディングされたものです。

まさにAAの原型に触れる感じで錬金術の始まりがここにあります。
Casino"と "Sarah Victoria"の初期バージョンが収録されています。
カルテット(四重奏-ヴァイオリン2、ヴィオラ、チェロ)が入っています。
ニックがフラメンコとジャズのコンポを初めて試みたという"Sira's Song"ですが、ニックは
この曲で精神的な集中力を得たそうです。
サイモンのソロの"Daybreak"を聴くと彼も又、素晴らしいギタリストだという事を改めて知らされます。
