About this deal

The brooding, piano-driven waltz Forgive (But Not Forget) looks back at one (‘ Our fate perhaps, or were we just ill-matched’), with a grand, expressive guitar solo and overwrought rhythmic variations adding to the drama. Completed by a working party of musicians closest to the multi-instrumentalist, spear-headed by co-producer/engineer, Patrick Phillips (Kate Bush, Van Morrison, Goldfrapp, Ludovico Einaudi).

On one hand, it can be tempting to heap praise simply due to nostalgia or emotion, but on the other hand it feels disrespectful to be dishonest.

The CF was then finished and mastered by some exceptional musicians and studio technicians as a tribute to this irreplaceable musical force. I said earlier this track “should be a standard” – what I mean by that is that I could easily hear this song being interpreted by any number of singers (certainly those outside of the rock / prog tradition! Door One, borrowing the nickname for a recreation ground in Nottingham near where David grew up, has a musical personality that is distinct from his work within Big Big Train even though Gregory Spawton plays acoustic guitar on two songs. Door One, David Longdon’s posthumous solo album, is out now on CD and white and black vinyl editions.

Plus we see how it affected the family, both literal and the band-family – our “loss” in no way compares to their… but we feel it. The Letting Go” is just as good, though, with its 10+ minute runtime, hopeful aura, fantastic instrumentation, and grand ending.There's a suppleness to the instrumentation on Door One that is often missing in BBT’s meticulously crafted music.

However, by the Spring of last year, he was seeking to forge a solo career in parallel with continuing to be a leading force within Big Big Train. Nicely crafted tracks but a couple do seem to be that they are missing the final touches to the album.
