about

Scott Doonican covers The Levellers' seminal 1991 album 'Levelling The Land'.

These tracks were previously released as the bonus download tracks on the strictly limited 'The Devil Went Darn To Barnsley / When Love Runs Out Of Time' 7" (there were four different pieces of cover art and these tracks that makeup the album were split over the four different exclusive covers, of which there were only 50 copies of each!). The album is now available as a whole to those who weren't lucky enough to bag one of the collector's items.

The decision was made that the majority of tracks would be covered 'Bar-Steward Unplugged'-style, mostly on one instrument, Scott's acoustic guitar, 'The Workhorse' (although a few tracks feature piano, samples and electric guitar).

The songs were recorded in five sessions:
17th Feb - One Way / The Riverflow / The Boatman
27th Feb - Another Man's Cause / Sell Out / Far From Home
28th Feb - The Road
1st March - Battle Of The Beanfield
2nd March - The Game / Liberty Song

A huge thanks to The Levellers themselves, particularly Jeremy Cunningham for his superb artwork for the Devil 7" (and for creating one of the most iconic pieces of album artwork of the 1990s) and to Simon Friend for his belief in the Doonicans since our first encounter at Beautiful Days in 2012. The Levellers and their beautiful festival have had such an impact on our lives over the last few years, and I can't thank them enough for that.

This one is for Amanda, Addie Burns and all of our lovely festival family.
Cheers!
