All songs by Deirdre Burton, except "It doesn't get better than this" by Simon Romer.

"Slow train home" and "Nothing but light on my mind" are based on poems by Tom Davis.

"Some distant day" is a free paraphrase of a letter by Rainer Maria Rilke in "Letters to a young poet".

"It ain't been in vain for nothing" is a quotation from the movie "Singin' in the Rain".

The seed idea for "Charlotte Street Bagel Blues" came from Jonathan Holmes and Rebecca Lenkiewicz.

Peter Readman provided the initial idea for "But then you appeared".

Our thanks to Rosie and Chris Oates for their skilful involvement with the musical development of the earlier songs. We're glad that their lives got busy with their new baby Joshua, although we missed their company and music making.

Our thanks to Dorothy Davis and Gioia Barnbrook for their loving encouragement.
