I really like the approach that Voiceprint are taking, lets take an established band or player and explore their history and heritage through 60 minutes of their music.

Gordon Giltrap is a well known name in the music world, and a name that deserves higher stature than he currently gets. I find it an anathema that people with absolutely no musical ability, but a penchant for getting arrested are the ones that get all of the musical press. Maybe Gordon Giltrap should move to New York and carry a 9mm automatic!

Gordon is a self taught musician, who started playing at the tender age of twelve. His career has spanned 40 years and during that time he has played with just about everyone if the world of musics ‘Who’s Who’.This CD showcases Gordon Giltrap’s wide musical styles, from Rock, to Folk, to slightly Classical and on occasions Jazz, they are all to be found here.

Included in this compilation is Heartsong which was without doubt his greatest commercial single, also included though are a number of his less well known works that deserve far more recognition than they have so far received.

For a very pleasant musical experience take Gordon out for a spin, you can buy it at record stores everywhere, or online through MVD.
