The Days Of David McWilliams - David McWilliams

The Days Of David McWilliams
An Irish folk rock artist who in 1967 released three albums of his own material on the Major Minor label. An amazing period of productivity matched by the amazing consistency of quality throughout all the material he wrote and recorded. Musically he backed himself on 6 and 12 string guitar with further arrangements and orchestration provided by the then wunderkind producer Mike Leander. The combination of McWilliams heartfelt lyrics and songstyle with Leanders evocative arrangements of the simple melodies still sound bewitching today. 'The Days Of Pearly Spencer' was covered by Marc Almond in the early 90's and 'Three O'Clock Flamingo Street' is another radio favourite.

There has only been one other McWilliams compilation, released by EMI when the Almond single was a hit in 1992. That collection has long since been deleted and this RPM collection only repeats four tracks from the EMI set. For McWilliams fans and 60's folk/rock fans the idea is to follow up this present collection with a Volume two later in the year. The RPM collection presents a range of subject matter, some of their time such as Hiroshima and Harlem Lady, others love songs that transcend time. The English had Donovan, the Americans had Dylan, the Irish had McWilliams.
