New Zealand singer/songwriter Dennis O'Brien has released a best of compilation (Sept 2013) from the three albums he recorded in the late 1970s and early 80s in England and New Zealand. Dennis recorded his first album in England with producer Hugh Murphy (best known for his work with Gerry Rafferty on his hit Baker Street), and the subsequent two in Wellington's Marmalade Studios with Jim Hall producing. Still In The Same Dream -Songs 1972-1982 brings together a selection of 20 songs written by O'Brien, with co-writers David Porter and Nick Theobald. These well crafted songs were recorded by the cream of London and NZ's session musicians. The material includes the compilation title track - a New Zealand Song of the Year Award winner - and Any Other Face In The Rain, featuring sax player Raphael Ravenscroft (who played the Baker Street riff), which enjoyed strong sales in Europe. The tracks also include other single releases from the late 70s and early 1980s, as well as the pick of the cuts from the three albums. All of the tracks have been remastered by David Bowater of OHO Recording.
