Robin has had quite a few lessons this evening, and now they have finished, he is settling down to running through the two solo programmes he will need next week. Yes, another trip is looming. It's good to be busy though, in fact we had to turn a one week long trip down because of a previous booking. A good situation to be in!
Robin does keep getting distracted by these old reel to reel tapes. I'm not surprised, it's quite a strange experience hearing yourself play, and even sing, on some of the early tapes. It is sad that some great recordings never got released and some great pieces never got as far as being recorded in a studio.
I have my eye on a few of the songs played by Force 10, a highly creative band of quite some years ago now, and hope to do something with them at some point. They have stood the test of time very well.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
