David Elliott - All One - 2009

David Elliott - All One - 2009 

There will always be the need for songwriters in the Rock genre and when looking through any artist's recorded catalogue you are likely to find a number of 'covers' by songwriters with unfamiliar names.  David Elliott has been busy writing and recording for many years with a variety of artists and he had two solo albums released in England on Atlantic Records in the 70's ('David Elliott' & 'Solid Ground').

David has numerous credits and co-credits to his name and some of the songs performed here have a certain notoriety. His composition of 'I'm On Fire For You Baby' was recorded by established Canadian band April Wine, who had a top ten hit with it, and it was recently placed in the movie ‘Trailer Park Boys’. Also Mick Grabham, one time lead guitarist with Procul Harum recorded it, and it is on his latest album 'Mick The Lad'.

While living in England during late 1974 David was involved in the late Paul Kossoff's  'Love Is The Lord' project.  Free had broken up and after Paul's initial solo album 'Back Street Crawler' in 1974 he was trying to put a new band together. David plays piano on 'You've Taken Hold Of Me' from these sessions, originally issued on the posthumous 'Koss' album on DJM Records in 1977, but featured here for the first time is the David Elliott original ‘AlI One' also recorded with Paul Kossoff during the same period.

All One features Paul Kossoff in one of his 'lost but found' recordings. This song is a must have for all Free Fans. Paul Kossoff provides all the thrills and licks we'd expect. It's release is very welcome as another piece in the jigsaw of what was happening during the lost period of broken bands and uncompleted albums. ANY new Kossoff is always welcome.

The majority of the tracks on his 'All One' CD were recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and utilize some fine musicians such as David Hood, a well known bass player who has played on many classic soul and rock hits, and Scott Boyer, a noted songwriter/guitarist.
