Here are various mp3 clips of my playing. I am often asked if I have CDs for sale. Regrettably, I have only, thus far, recorded miscellaneous tracks.
- L'accordéoniste - A favourite Edith Piaf song.
- Le Plus Beau Tango du Monde - Well known French tango, played on my Roland accordion.
- Sunny Afternoon - A studio recording using synth modules and so on. ‘The taxman's taken all my dough…’
- Dixon (of Dock Green) signature tune - A nostalgic old English favourite. The first half is just my Roland accordion, live. In the second half, I have played guitar chords as well.
- Carte Postale - Part of a lovely French valse as played by Danielle Pauly, specially composed for her excellent album Fleur du Jura.
- L'étoile des Troubadours - Not being a real singer, I normally only sing to lead a singalong. It's not easy to play and sing well simultaneously! But with the luxury of multitracking, I had a go at this traditional French song, doing the vocal and the various accordion parts.
- Godfather Love Theme - From the original Godfather film 1972. Music by Nino Rota.
- Funiculi Funicula - A lively Italian tune in the Tarantella rhythm.
- La Java du Morbihan - The java is a characteristic dance style that emerged in Paris in the 1930's. This one was probably intended to spread the craze to Bretagne (Brittany).
- Alison's Waltz - This is a French style waltz recently composed by Alison Doubleday of South London, a fellow member of the Morley Accordion Club that I attend. I play this on my Roland FR1x accordion.
- 'Allo 'Allo - The famous TV theme, with an extra section (in the minor) that I made up.
- Pilgrim's Progress (1969) - Experimenting with the organ sounds on my Roland FR1x accordion: this is from Procol Harum's third album. It was written by Matthew Fisher, who is best known for co-composing and performing 'Whiter Shade Of Pale'.
