Inspired by the words of Liverpool poet Peter Grant featuring 10 new songs penned
by Steve Macfarlane and Billy Hui with additional words by Gary Millar. The album’s
title is based on Peter’s poem of the same name and Happy Daze the poem became Cherry
Blossom the song -
Happy Daze arranged, engineered & produced by Steve Wright with the help of his lovely wife Viv at Y Dream Studios in Wales. Whilst Billy played the keyboards, all other instruments are the awesome work of Steve Wright. Credits for backing vocals go to Gary Millar & Steve Wright. In fact, Gary has also been involved at every stage of each song’s development and is particularly proud of his fine tuning the oriental mix of All The Tea in China and the final mixes of Heart Scare and Sideboard Picture.
