In my library, the sessions that these recordings started from are referred to as 'Dreamscape-II'.  For many years, we have attempted to find Colin Elswood, our original singer, with a view to finishing off a Dreamscape album, as Julian, Paul Whittington and I always felt that the original Dreamscape line-up did not achieve anywhere it's true potential (less than ten gigs in 1986).  These recordings feature John Peters on vocals.  He did a sterling job here - recording more than half a dozen tracks in a single evening, without actually ever having heard or rehearsed them with us - I don't even think he had seen the words written down before.  Jules still plays in a show-band with John, but I really would love to find a way to convince him to work with us properly on this (and a whole load of newer) material, as a side project - not for money, but for the satisfaction of having done a good job on some good material.

These are all very much 'works in progress', and not finished product, but give a good indication of the sort of material we performed, and the standards we aspired to.  I have another half a dozen or so songs from these sessions that I would like to add guitar to, and complete the recordings.

These recordings are nor for sale, and are for demo purposes only - please do not attempt to sell them!

There are a few live recordings of Dreamscape gigs - Thekla, Bristol Bridge, Moles and many song-writing work cassettes (with 'Rod') that have been digitised.
