Track 04 is from the Ballads of the Books compilation, a 2007 collaboration between authors and musicians, on Chemikal Underground. Details at: www.chemikal.co.uk/ballads/ De Rosa's 1st album "Mend" and recently released 2nd album "Prevention" are available from Chemikal Underground's online shop, and good record shops everywhere. Both highly recommended :-) Martin Henry was recently referred to as "The Scottish Neil Young" and I can understand why. His very individual vocal style and the wonderful depth of feeling in his performance recall classic songwriters such as Neil Young, but the songwriting has a sense of place which is very original. This set was 30 mins of sheer pleasure from one of my favourite acts of the last 5 years or so. Check out other Chemikal Underground artists at: www.myspace.com/chemikalunderground

Aunque Evageline lo anuncia como el "Neil Young Escocés" creo que se ha dejado llevar por su amor al músico. Con esto no quiero decir que su trabajo no sea bueno, pero de eso a que me recuerde a Young... creo que se ha pasado.
De todas forma, lo tienes en Dime A Dozen por si quieres juzgar por ti mismo.
