Ian Gomm

Although hardly a household name, Ian Gomm has an impressive track record in the music business. He's been treading the boards for over 35 years and has worked with a staggering variety of musicians, from classical rockers Sky to country diva, Nanci Griffith.

As a songwriter, his material has been covered by everyone from Glen Campbell to Phil Everly. As a producer he's collaborated with acts as diverse as proto punk rockers the Stranglers and Kraut rock giants, Amon Duul II.

But he's probably best remembered for the five years he spent as guitarist, singer and songwriter with the quite wonderful Brinsley Schwarz, during which time he and Nick Lowe co-wrote several great pop songs, including 'Cruel To Be Kind'.

In 1979, Ian had his first solo hit in the States with 'Hold On', and he and his band set out on an extensive tour of the U.S.

The concert on this CD was recorded during this tour and is now released here for the first time. The accompanying 8 page booklet features comprehensive liner notes, including an interview with Ian, and several rare photographs from the Gomm archive.
