Review from Alistair Robinson, Sunderland Echo

One of the North-East's best singer-songwriters, Pete Scott, is back with a fine new album. Pete first came to prominence in the Geordie folk-rock boom of the early 1970s, releasing a set of much-admired albums and touring with John Martyn, Richard Thompson, Janis Ian and Judie Tzuke as well as Tyneside compatriots Lindisfarne. I well recall him providing strong support for Martyn at Newcastle City Hall. I also have fond memories of him packing them in during the 1980's at the Glebe Folk Club at the Royalty pub in Chester Road, Sunderland.

In the 1990s, Pete concentrated on teaching and writing, and had a ground-breaking spell as Britain's first musician in residence at a prison, before returning to recording a couple of years ago with an album which put his melodies alongside the world of bygone Geordie bard Joe Wilson.

The new album comprises songs new and old, including three that used to go down very well at the Glebe - You're Only Lonely, Closing Time and Ms Lapotaire. Meanwhile, the opener, One Man Band, stems from his time at HMP Moorland, near Doncaster. There are country tunes, some light rockers, a couple of Latin-tinged numbers, all distinguished by Pete's incisive lyrics.
