Alan Hull

When Brit folk rock faves Lindisfarne split in 1973, co-founder Alan Hull forged a successful solo career with albums ‘Pipedream’ and ‘Squire’.

By late 1977 the band was back in business but by then Hull was fronting new band, Radiator with former members of Snafu and Ginger Baker’s post-Cream group Airforce.

With this line-up he would release Isn’t It Strange, the majority of which was repackaged in 1979 for Phantoms – both for Elton John’s Rocket Record Company.

This first time CD reissue on Market Square compiles these albums (removing track duplication) and adding five bonus demos from 1975.

The collection forms a lasting reminder of Hull’s fluid, deceptively catchy, and pleasing melodies, and rich, deeply evocative phrasing and imagery.

A 12-page booklet features extensive notes and previously unpublished photos.
