Cherry Red is proud to release the sixth solo album by Status Quo keyboard player and multi‐ instrumentalist Andy Bown. "Unfinished Business” features ten new tracks and is Andy's first solo album in over 30 years. "Unfinished Business” is produced by Mike Paxman and features contributions from the likes of Henri Spinetti (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Katie Melua), Mick Rogers (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band) and Trevor Bolder (David Bowie, Uriah Heep).
Andy continued an intermittent solo recording career, whilst starting to work with Status Quo in 1976, first as a session musician, and then as a full time member, recording "Rockin' All Over The World” with the band in 1978. He plays keyboards, guitar and harmonica with Status Quo to this day and is an integral part of the band, having co‐penned many well‐known Quo songs, most prominently the group's hits "Whatever You Want”, "Again and Again” and the 1988 hit "Burning Bridges” which, re‐recorded, went on to reach No.1 in the charts as Manchester United Football Club’s anthem.
Andy has a rich musical heritage, starting from his sixties bands The Preachers and The Herd, where he gave the talented teenager Peter Frampton his first job, on through an endless list of recording sessions with artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Halliday, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Tim Hardin, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, Lesley Duncan, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon and many, many more, whilst part‐forming the ultimate 70’s pop‐rock band, Judas Jump (opening The Isle of Wight Festival 1970) and also appearing with the cult folk band Storyteller. He played keyboards for Peter Frampton in the early 1970s, switching to bass for several tours after Rick Wills departed the band. Andy was the surrogate Roger Waters during Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ tour of 1980 and 81 and he also played Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut” album and Roger Waters’ subsequent release Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking”. Andy’s first solo album "Gone To My Head” was released in 1972.
"Every song here
features top-class musicianship and a tune you can hum.”
Pinfold (Record Collector – October 2011)
