Deluxe 2CD Reissue Of The Classic Topic Album, Featuring A Bonus Disc Of Live Tracks!

Considered by many in the folk world as one of Martin Simpsons finest albums, Topic are proud to present here in their 80th year the first release on the Topic Treasures imprint, deluxe issues of classic Topic albums from the label.

Prodigal Son, the classic album in all its glory along with a bonus disc of live tracks hand-picked by Martin Simpson himself.

Originally released in 2007, the album was hailed a classic, receiving 4- and 5-star reviews in such publications as The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Daily Express and Observer while Folk publications such as fRoots raved about its wonderment!

Tracks like 'Duncan & Brady' an American ballad originally recorded by Leadbelly and 'Good Morning Mr. Railroad Man' clearly indicate Martin Simpsons love for traditional American roots music and the wonderful cover of Randy Newman's track 'Louisiana 1927' delve into historical event territory. One of the stand out tracks if there is such a thing on this album of quality is 'Never Any Good' a song about Father and Son relationship, stands out as the shining star. In truth the whole album is a true tour de force and a beautiful body of work from one of the greatest guitar players in the world.

The bonus disc 2 features 9 live tracks recorded at the Union Chapel in Islington, London on 13th November 2007 and features Andy Cutting, Andy Seward and Kellie While in Martin Simpsons band for the gig. Tracks such as 'Duncan and Brady', 'Never Any Good' and 'Good Morning Mr Railroad Man' are played with such beauty and style.
