• One of the most accomplished and enduring British singer/songwriters to emerge from the 1960s club circuit, the young Ralph McTell signed his first publishing deal with Essex Music, who then brokered a recording contract with Nat Joseph’s folk-oriented Transatlantic label in the summer of 1967.
• Over a three-year period, McTell cut a trio of albums for the label before assembling a fourth and final set, Ralph McTell Revisited, that consisted of re-recorded or re-mixed material, with the release initially being conceived as a story-thus-far introduction for the American market.
• A double-CD anthology featuring every track that McTell cut for Transatlantic, All Things Change chronicles an extremely productive period of his career that saw him record much of his finest, most vital work with the aid of rookie producer Gus Dudgeon, arrangers Tony Visconti and Mike Vickers and musicians ranging from legendary session drummer Clem Cattini to C.O.B. mainman Clive Palmer.
• Featuring a 16-page booklet and a new essay on McTell’s early career, All Things Change includes the original, superior version of the timeless classic ‘Streets Of London’, a previously-unissued, orchestra-free recording of ‘Eight Frames A Second’, the rare non-LP single ‘Summer Come Along’ and the first-ever CD release of the Revisited album.
