THE LADY.

'An Lp. from Paul Cowlan was an event to look forward to, but no-one expected something this different, and this good.' (Folk Michel.) Germany

This was my first album. It came out while I was touring in Norway, and I first heard it, or part of it, in a telephone booth in Oslo. While Gabriele spun the newly-arrived disc back in Frankfurt, cranked up the volume, held the receiver close to the speakers, and probably infuriated the neighbours, I pressed the Norwegian handset to my ear and tried to ignore the proximity of a busy building site.

At that time I didn't have the first idea about studio practicalities, and Martin Müller did a great job of rounding up musicians, arranging and producing the songs etc. The result was a gratifying surprise, and a style quite unlike any of the subsequent albums.
