Rod Demick may be best-known as a top sideman, serving with such talent as Screaming Lord Sutch, Dr. John, The Strawbs and the David Essex Band. Herbie Armstrong has had a similarly long career, playing with Van Morrison and film composer Mark Isham, co-founding the band Fox, and even entering Britain’s Got Talent as a contestant. But Demick and Armstrong have shared a long association, dating back to their days in the clubs of Belfast where they played alongside Morrison and his early band, Them. Demick and Armstrong’s 1971 album Little Willie Ramble, recorded at London’s Trident Studios for Gordon Mills’ MAM label, made a splash in 1971. It was greeted by acclaim from BBC Radio One as well as the music press. But Demick and Armstrong were destined to take second place at MAM to Gilbert O’Sullivan, and their contract was bought out by A&M. Their lone album, Little Willie Ramble, disappeared without a trace, but now this unique blend of country, rock and pop has been reissued as a expanded edition
