THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN! 7 Anthems From RICHARD ASHCROFT…

RICHARD ASHCROFT, the eccentric Northern Soul Man from Wigan, England is finally back. Six years after his ‘RPA and The United Nations Of Sound’ project, eight years after reunion album ‘Forth’ with The Verve and ten years after his last proper solo album ‘Keys To The World’ new, excellent LP ‘These People’ is out now. This summer, August 8th, he will play Belgium at the Lokerse Feesten Festival. I will be in the front row, oh yes. Reasons enough
for a Magnificent Seven selection. Here are seven epic symphonies illustrating the sonic radiance of the man’s flamboyant career…

1/ Slide Away (1993)
The wild years. A dreamy and mind-blowing trip, with Ashcroft eight miles high…

2/ This Is Music (1995)
Bombastic magic. Fully charged and grand orchestration…

3/ Bittersweet Symphony (1997)
I heard this a million times but still his most bewitching anthem ever. Just unavoidable…

4/ Velvet Morning (1997)
This is music! Pure beauty. One of his most intense moments…

5/ Buy It In Bottles (2002)
One of the best ballads – to my ears – he ever wrote. Melodic splendor…

6/ Why Not Nothing (2006)
RA on a roll. King-sized chorus to scream along out loud. Vibrant power…

7/ This Is How It Feels (2016)
Back in captivating style. Vintage majesty. Glorious return…
