Throughout the history of the band there have always been the occasional cover songs, but mostly consigned to the extra-or-hidden-track department, although a couple of songs made it onto albums such as “Of A Lifetime” on I,Vigilante, and most recently “Turn To Stone” on the critically acclaimed album BRONZE, which were instant hits and popular live songs. Now it’s time to dedicate a whole release to this CBP tradition.
Greaves says about the recording - “These songs are ones i have wanted to record for some time, ones where i feel a connection, and ones where i just simply want to have a go at doing our own version out of respect for a good tune. Songs like “False Spring”, “In Bad Dreams” and “The Faith Healer” have been constant companions in my music listening, and when i listen i could kinda hear CBP doing a half-decent attempt on them. Other songs on this recording mean a... lot more to me, like “Victory”, “Will-O-The-Wisp” and “The Golden Boy Swallowed By The Sea”, they are songs that hit a little deeper into my emotions for various reasons. So I’m really glad to be able to do these covers finally, some are quite faithful to the original, and a couple are more transformed into the CBP way of things, but they’re all done out of respect”.
