When I first heard BILL FOSTER sing it struck me that a real depth of feeling and sincerity went into everything that he sang, be it a romantic ballad or a humorous song. He is a man who must feel for a song and personally get involved in it before he can give a performance true to himself. I have known him consider several songs but only select one or two of them, even then, interpreting them in his own way. This album draws material from the extremes of Bill’s vast repertoire. Songs such as’OUT ALONG THE EAST COAST’,’THE OLD MAN’S LAMENT’and ‘WINTER LADY’ by such contemporary writers as Chris Rowe, Ian Campbell and Leonard Cohen blend well with other tracks on this record written by Bill himself and shows him to be a fine contemporary writer. We can’t help feeling that his songs ‘WOULDN’T IT BE NICE TO BE FIVE YEARS OLD’, ‘TEACHER OF CHILDREN’ and ‘REFLECTIONS FROM THE SHORE’ show Bill as he really is – a happily married school teacher entrenched in his native Yorkshire!
