Only a few short years ago, singer/songwriter/vocalist Eric Lindell was known only to a small but enthusiastic group of fans in his native Northern California and his adopted city of New Orleans. Once he hit the national music scene with his 2006 Alligator Records debut, Change In The Weather, critics and fans around the world celebrated the arrival of a roots rocker with dozens of unforgettable original songs. His combination of sweet, blue-eyed soul with groove-laden R&B, swamp pop, funk and blues won him critical and popular acclaim across the country. As he toured the U.S., his fan base grew, and before long clubs and festivals were filled with dancing people singing the words to every song. With his 2007 release, Low On Cash, Rich In Love, his popularity increased exponentially. A February 2008 appearance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien put him in front of an audience of millions of people worldwide. Clubs around the country were experiencing overflow crowds when Eric performed. The word was out. Eric Lindell had arrived.
Through his work in Thin Lizzy, Ultravox and of course Band Aid, Midge Ure became a household name in the UK. So, when he launched his solo career it was to immediate success with the No 1 hit single "If I Was", taken from the similarly successful No 2 debut album The Gift. This edition is a brand new digital remaster of the album, complete with a bonus disc containing 15 bonus tracks, alternate mixes and live tracks (three of which are previously unreleased).
