From the ashes of despair...

My first attempt at assembling the Broughton western mix was such a mess that I was worried that it might not work. I then took a short break and looked at it again. Tonight I rolled up my sleeves and went to work. I just completed the second draft, and I was surprised at how easily it come out this time around, once I revisited it, the whole mix seemed to form itself. I did indeed end up having to axe The Ballad of Lucy Whipple, not because of the quality of the writing, which is very good, but because the idiom is so different from the rest of the album that it would have disturbed the flow. The result has a rather nice bits of Americana, with some thundering action music and a few emotionally stirring passages.
