Cherry Tree
Records is pleased and extremely excited to announce the reissue of the
original 1971 EMI recording of Julie Covington’s debut solo album The Beautiful Changes.

Unavailable for
many years with original copies fetching legendarily large sums on eBay, the
album is one of the great ‘lost’ masterpieces of the era—affection and
admiration for it continues to grow among the many fans and aficionados of
intelligent and ornate early ’70s pop.

Penned almost
entirely by acclaimed songwriters Pete Atkin and Clive James, this album was
recorded at EMI’s renowned Abbey Road studios. Produced by Don Paul and
impeccably arranged by Nick Harrison, Don Fraser and Pete Atkin himself, The Beautiful Changes is a baroque pop tour de force that captures Julie
Covington’s intense and expressive voice across her eclectic selection of
material, including classic torch songs, lyrical ballads and character
vignettes.Includes
a beautifully produced 16-page booklet with reminiscences and tracking notes
written by Ms. Covington together with photographs from her archive.

It also
includes recollections from Pete Atkin, Don Paul and Don Fraser as well as
session notes and complete lyrics.

The
epic closer ‘My Silks And Fine Array’ appeared on St Etienne’s 2004 compilation
CD, The Trip.
