Notes (****): The second Downes Braide Association album, following the debut Pictures of You. The album includes "Dreaming of England" that had been included on a limited edition (500 copies) 5-track 12" vinyl EP for Record Store Day on 19 Apr 2014 (Plane Groovy). The song then was described as the music having been recorded during the Pictures of You sessions, but lyrics written subsequently and vocals recorded Dec 2013. Gregory plays in Big Big Train, while Pomeroy will be best know to Yescography readers as Rick Wakeman's bassist.
