Terry Edwards - Very Terry Edwards

It’s unusual to write a press release in first person, but this is no ordinary compilation. Very Terry Edwards is a birthday present to myself as much as anything else. When the earliest recording here was made the 18-year old me couldn’t comprehend being 60, yet here I am presenting a triple album containing 60 titles recorded between 1979 and 2020, through thick and thin. And yes - that is me on a camel, in a suit, by the Egyptian pyramids. No digital trickery.

Sure, there are many turns not featured here and I’ve chosen my favourite tracks above more famous ones in many cases but the whole is, ultimately, Very Terry Edwards. If you miss things I’m on by the likes of Siouxsie, Julian Cope, Madness, Tindersticks, Hot Chip and PJ Harvey (though there’s a cracking cover of Medicinals on CD2) I’m sure you can find them quite easily elsewhere.
You never know – I might try it again in 5, 10, 15 years time…


Plenty of Terry Edwards originals here as well as contributions to other bands. The instrumental Boots Off!! From his Scapegoats project is a particular favourite. A real energetic workout replete with some outstandingly addictive sax playing, elegant Hammond organ sounds, a wonderfully melodious bassline and exquisite riffing.
