CLIFFORD T WARD
Path Through the Forest
The Secret World of Clifford T Ward 1964-71

This anthology collects together no fewer than 57 tracks recorded between 1964 and ’72 before Ward established himself as a singer songwriter of some repute through classic albums such as Home Thoughts. And what a great collection it is, covering not just the six A and B-sides he cut with various incarnations of his mid-60s band the Secrets, but also a wealth of unreleased material and demos. This overview provides a unique perspective of a fledgling talent trying on different styles and finding they fit like a glove. With the track listing eschewing any sense of chronology you never know what you’re going to get next - from blue-eyed soul to paisley pop to exquisite piano-led tropes on love and loss. Of particular interest to Shindig! readers will be the inclusion of both the original and demo versions of the title track, a genuine psychedelic classic later covered by the Factory.‚" (Shindig!)
