On my own now. No longer CBS’s baby. They had become tired of the obstacles. They read laziness into what was mental ill health. They did not understand why I seemed to want to scupper the commercial success I had. I began writing with Pete Glenister. A guy who had a short stint as guitarist on the raindancing tour and who was ‘let go’. Pete and I make a good team. He is a gentleman and a scholar and a great writer. We were excited by each others’ ideas. I suggested perhaps that he produce me. Muff Winwood AandR told me to do what I liked. I did.

In making Hoodoo, we were left to our own devices and found some passion and aggression again. It is not a flawless record…but I know of few that are… and none that I have made… but it became a road that lead to my understanding myself much better. It has some songs on it that I am very proud of and favourites, It wont be long, This House, Hoodoo and chunks of Footsteps.

Mixed reviews. The record company were disheartened by the decline in sales and lost interest and faith. I was just getting back it again.

  • Footsteps (2009 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      It won’t be clean and easy

      There’s more to carry than a case or two

      I come with a history that I won’t forget in a life with you

      This man’s been true to me and I didn’t come by him easy

      Shame shame crying shame

      Losing more than a family name

      Don’t let your footsteps falter

      You’re gonna get wet if you dip in the water

      Be sure what you take me for and I won’t ever want for more

      Don’t let your footsteps fail me

      You’re gonna get sunk if you slip on the way

      When I say that the time is right

      Go walk this mother out of sight

      I didn’t plan to meet you now here I am on a roundabout

      See the road where I lived my life

      If I go with you there’s no turning back

      I’m tired and I ain’t proud but I want you more

      than I ever have

      Tell me baby, did you think about it

      It won’t be young and pretty

      Look around you, you know it

      Ain’t nothing new for me I don’t get fooled so easy

      What’s good ain’t gonna be fine six months on down the line

      Shame shame crying shame

      Losing more than a family name

      Have you found it, did you find what you’re looking for

      You know you change your mind and it’s a waste of time

      And heaven only knows you’ll be on your own

  • It Won't Be Long (2009 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      One of these days

      I’m waiting on a day

      When nobody comes to trample my meadow

      Biding my time

      There’s gonna be a time

      Might take a while but

      Changes are coming

      And it won’t be long

      When everything you said

      Won’t sit around and pile up with the traffic in my head

      And when I wake up

      I won’t see you on the bathroom floor

      In the tangle of clothes we left lying there

      It won’t be long

      One of these nights

      With company I find

      I won’t be inclined to leave before sunrise

      When my eyes, my mouth, my hands, my head

      Don’t tell me that nobody else will do

      And it won’t be long

      When everything you said

      Won’t sit around and pile up with the traffic in my head

      And when I wake up

      I won’t see you on the bedroom floor

      In the tangle of rope we left lying there

      It won’t be long

      It won’t be long

      ‘Til it’s all gone

      And it won’t be long

      When everything you said

      Won’t sit around and pile up with the traffic in my head

      And when I wake up

      I won’t see you by the bedroom door

      In the wallpaper stained by the cup that I threw at your head

      It won’t be long

  • This House (2009 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Whose sticky hands are these

      And what is this empty place

      I could be happily lost but for your face

      Here stands an empty house

      That used to be full of life

      Now it’s home for no one and his wife

      It’s a hovel and

      Who can take your place?

      I can’t face another day

      And who will shelter me?

      It’s cold in here

      Cover me

      Under these fingertips a strange body rolls and dips

      I close my eyes and you’re here again

      Later as day descends

      I’ll shout from my window

      To anyone listening. “I’m losing”

      Who can take your place?

      I can’t face another day

      And who will shelter me?

      It’s cold in here

      Cover me

      Oh in a plague of hateful questioning

      Tap dancing every syllable from ear to ear

      I hear the din of lovers jousting

      When I’m hiding with my head to the wall

      Who will shelter me?

      It’s cold in here

  • Rise (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Baby lose that frying pan

      You don’t live to feed that man

      Nothing’s gained through self-denial

      ‘Cos you weren’t born to be servile

      Don’t you know you gotta

      Rise - Think about what you do now

      Where do you belong

      Are you somebody’s little babe

      Or does the fight go on

      Do you think the hurting is gonna go away

      If you leave uprising for another day

      Hey mister! Better teach your child to run

      From all you name as just harmless fun

      Do you show respect everywhere you go

      Do you teach the young man how to treat your own

      Don’t you know you gotta

      Rise - Think about what you do now

      How do you behave

      Would you leave your children

      What you see today

      Freedom to the children of the world

      Think about what you do now

      Everything you see

      Life ain’t living in a magazine

      Life ain’t living

      Sister! Why do you trade it in

      For a diamond chip and a rabbit skin

      His big red car is a mite too fast

      And it wasn’t built for the ride to last

      Freedom to the slave of the slave

      (and you know you are)

  • Wishing You Were Here (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      I can’t begin to tell you how it feels

      It’s a clear blue sky

      Out here my heart so full it’s fit to burst

      Just counting the hours

      Home, such a long way gone

      How to share a day, here’s my only way

      Send myself to you

      Wishing you were here

      I can’t begin to tell you where I’ve been

      It’s a world behind

      And if we are to find our heaven here

      We just have to look harder

      Now I can see you

      I never could before, now I want nothing more

      When I close my eyes

      Wishing you were here

      Home such a long way gone

      How to share a day, here’s my only way

      When I close my eyes

      Wishing you were here

      I can’t begin to tell you how it feels...

  • Hoodoo (2009 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Well now everyone says you’ve got a heart of gold

      Huh! Yeah it’s one of those things being bought and sold

      Now it’s back on the market I’ve been told

      Hoodoo, you

      Well I rue the day I ever saw your face

      (Thank you God for the day I saw his face)

      Even more the day I opened up my place

      You can go and park your car in space

      Hoodoo you. Hoodoo

      Who do? Who do you Hoodoo too?

      Save it for your mother

      Save it for the judge

      Save it for your brother who can never ever get enough

      Share it with your neighbours

      Share it with your friends

      Hand it out if you’re ever in doubt

      But here is where your credit ends

      Who do? Who do you Hoodoo too?

      Well now look at all the candles on your wall

      Set a little flame to one and all

      Burn them out, it’s fine to fall

      Hoodoo, you

      And now don’t I just know what you’re coming for

      (The sweetest thing without a d-dou-doubt)

      Ain’t just for banging on my door

      (She don’t know what it’s all a-b-bou-bout)

      Well I ain’t hungry anymore

      Hoodoo you. Hoodoo. Who do? Who do you Hoodoo too?

  • (Meeting With My) Main Man [2016 Remastered]

    • Lyrics

      Well sugar sweetness

      Move yourself

      I gotta go I got a meet to make

      Fine as it is back there

      Back up your tin can

      Pack off your sweet behind

      Ain’t got time to fool around

      Ain’t no wet nurse to you child

      Pick it up

      Baby meeting with my main man

      And I get a belly full of lovin’

      Meeting with my main man

      When I get through here gonna make my way

      Up to the 22nd floor with a pile of money

      I’ll throw it all up for a hit on the back wall

      If I want more you’ll be the first to know

      I’ll call you later - much later

      Just doing fine my dear up here

      Look around

      “Where do we go” you say

      Never could come where I wanna be

      This is hard as hell and I don’t want to take it easy

      Come on now - shake me

  • Back Where I Belong (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Have no faith

      Believe me, don’t believe in me

      I’m gonna let you down

      You make it so very easy

      He’s waiting for me

      That’s the way I ever want it to be

      It’s always been the same

      Yes it has, do you see, wanna be where I belong

      I belong

      What am I supposed to do?

      If he were there I wouldn’t be with you

      And you know the time is wrong

      I’m going home back where I belong

      You can’t lose what you don’t have

      Making waves won’t keep mine from me

      I was lonely and there you were

      Don’t think he’s hiding in the backroom

      He knows with a wave of his hand

      (On my way I’m) you’ll be out and I

      (On my way I’m) I’ll be on my way

      (On my way I’m) back where I belong

      I belong

      If he were there I wouldn’t be with you

      And you know that it’s all I have

      I’m telling you baby, I can’t stop now

      He’s waiting for me

      I gotta go ‘cos

      I feel his hand

      Reminds me how ain’t no use in having any other man

  • My Right A.R.M. (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Don’t be afraid of the dark my love

      What would old Hobbs do with this pure heart

      Where shadows inch like rising damp

      Their seaweed fingers will us all to be wakeful

      What a night for naming stars and parking cars

      Sink into our cloud of down and sleep with me

      Angel, angel, hold your head up high

      In no way let God’s kingdom pass you by

      There’s an open door and the lights are on

      And all the goings on, the shouting mouths have gone

      Though why should I care anyway

      I’ll see your sweet face everyday

      And that’s everything

      A prayer that I may never find you there

      Folded up in an empty room

      Too tired to laugh at a vaulting moon

  • Never Too Late (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      I saw a face, grey as the cold December

      A face I know, not the one that I remember

      I wanted to hide but I can’t run out on you forever

      (Milky eyes like opal stones

      Staring through a stained glass window

      It’s never too late to change your mind

      Looking through a stained glass window)

      It’s never too late

      I know a man, couldn’t change the peace that stands

      between us

      But these open hands are empty bowls to fill

      (Come for the one who pays the most

      You don’t get thanks for loyalty)

      And all your friends, have gone and sold you down the river

      They’ve got your phone book now

      (Once your life was a fiery feast

      Now it’s just a burning ember)

      It’s never too late

      We’ll get it back together

      It’s never too late

      Release me from this sorrow

      Will you never learn, love knows no bounds

      Beggar or a king, it will bring you down

      Fool I may be, can’t give up the ghost that haunts me

      I saw a face, grey as a cold December

      It’s never too late...

  • Find Me (2016 Remastered)

    • Lyrics

      Is your heart so heavy

      That it weighs you down

      So all you have is time

      Don’t turn away

      We have both seen darker days

      And there’s always a light that shines

      (Do you feel like) all your hopes are a long way gone

      (Does it seem like) every road only takes you down

      (Do they shut you out)

      Don’t be afraid of what they say

      Throw back your head and cry

      When you need somebody, find me there

      When you’re feeling empty I’ll be there - find me

      When you’re feeling weary with no peace of mind

      And the tone of your voice is hollow

      You’re home to stranger that won’t belong

      And there’s no-one else to follow

      (Do you feel like) nowhere, oh no, there’s no better way

      (Does it seem like) nobody hears a word you say

      (And they shut you out)

      Where does it say that a man ain’t a right

      To throw back his head and cry

      You don’t need to tell me ‘cos I know

      I know how you feel (you’re miles away)

      You don’t need to show me (nobody listens to a word

      you say)

      We can shut them out

      Where does it say that a man ain’t a right

      To throw back his head and cry

      When you need somebody find me there

      I’ll be right beside you

      When you’re feeling empty I’ll be there

      Can you hear me? I’ll be singing. . .
