I should start by explaining that you’ll search long and fruitlessly for the Japanese “Nightingales” single used as the featured image for this post. It comes from “Deviant Art” which has loads of brilliant pastiches of imaginary artefacts.
But as a false history, maybe not a bad way of introducing some real recollections, brought to mind by the “Langley” demos. Paddy’s sleeve notes are few and far between, but always valuable, and the notes from the Nightingales “Early Years” and “Demo Tapes” are probably not widely known. In the first, Paddy discusses the early recording experiences, and in the second the nature of Demo tapes.
