Hello Everyone,
John and Peter Williams This month sees the release of both my new ‘Look For A Star – The Western Star Sessions Vol 1’CD and Peter Williams Guitar Instrumental CD tribute to myself titled ‘Johnny Remember Me’. The CDs are being released on our own record label, Lone Rider Records and will be available for purchase from my website, mail order and at my concerts. As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter we will not be taking orders until we receive stocks of both CDs. Hopefully this will be within the next 10 days as the CDs are now with the pressing plant. Initial reviews of both CDs are very encouraging and I list below some of the quotes that Lone Rider Records have already received.

"If all the tracks are as good as ‘Country Boy’ then it’s going to be one heck of an album ‘return’ for John".
Geoff Barker - BBC Radio.

"This stands as an excellent collection of songs on which John’s vocal work combines with crack musicianship and present day technology to create a classic side of Sixties pop."
Russell Newmark - Journalist

"John this CD represents one of your finest performances, definitely an Oscar winning one, Bravo."
Rob Bradford - Joe Meek Appreciation Society.
