It was Kenny Herbert who first suggested a compilation CD to me. We were listening to a collection of the songs recorded at the studio and realised that they would work well together on the one CD. I sat at the computer and put the running order together very quickly. That running order hasn’t changed and for me it really works. Each artist featured is dedicated to their music and we have had many hours in the studio to achieve the best possible results. Given the title of this album I would like to mention my most favourite piece of music of all time. It is the last movement of Beethovens 9th symphony 'Ode to joy' written on the theme of friendship. Also the words of Robert Burns For a‚ that, and a‚ that, It’s comin yet for a‚ that, That man to man, the world o’er, Shall brothers be for a‚ that. This album is dedicated to friendship.


This CD contains some of the best music to be recorded and produced at DPS by David Paton over the last year. This limited edition contains two new songs from David’s forthcoming solo Album ‘Tell it like it is’ to be released on April 25th 2007. All the songs are original and it’s a great testament to the writers and musicians involved that such a fine collection of music has been assembled on the one CD. There is a great variety of styles and flavour, from the powerful opener ‘Catch me’ to the final tribute to ‘Edinburgh’ a traditional ballad about the Scottish Capital. All the artists featured are continuing their work with David at DPS and future releases and any recording news will be posted on this web site.
