Ballywonderland - Henry McCullough

Due for release tomorrow (August 16th) is Ballywonderland, a 15-track tribute to/best of Henry McCullough album. Available on CD, vinyl and digital download, the album includes an all-star cast of musicians on one of the tracks.

McCullough, the highly respected Irish guitarist, singer and songwriter, passed away in 2016, following a lengthy career that included being a key member of Joe Cocker's band, Spooky Tooth, and Wings. McCullough's spoken words "I don't know; I was really drunk at the time" can be heard on Pink Floyd's 1973 album, The Dark Side Of The Moon, as he was in Abbey Road Studios at the time the Floyd were recording the verbal responses to the questions they had on cards - this answer of Henry's was the reply to being asked "When was last time you thumped someone? Why did you do it?"

Co-written by Henry himself alongside Don Mescall, the song 'Live Long Rock 'N' Roll' was put together by a group of musicians that includes Nick Mason, Paul McCartney, Procol Harum's Gary Brooker, legendary guitarist Albert Lee, and more.
