Flying Carpet Ride
David Platstone is a songwriter and poet, Flying Carpet Ride is his latest album, the songs on it are inspired by where he was at a point in time and the fact that time is flying by so quickly. Hence the lyric from the title track 'Time didn't wait for me like it said it would.' The album consists of ten tracks; David on acoustic guitars and vocals, with Andrew Yeadon on bass guitar and keyboards, Jane Ford providing additional vocals and Gwyneth Lamb on flute. There are also two additional bonus tracks. The first bonus track (track 11) Anthem is a re-work of a track from a previous album. This version features acappella vocal group concordia. The second bonus track (track 12) is an alternative version of the title track performed by The Trans-Atlantic Trio, David Platstone on electric guitar and vocals, Ray Gargett on bass guitar and Paul Cowen on drums. David and Paul recorded their parts in the UK, Ray's bass line was recorded in the USA and the whole track mixed back in the UK.
