And So It Began Again... Acoustically by Morrissey & Marshal
And So It Began Again... Acoustically by Morrissey & Marshall is out.
In October 2018 Morrissey & Marshall returned to the studio in the middle of their tour of the UK and Ireland, Benelux, Scandinavia and Germany, to record an acoustic version of their debut album ‘And So It Began’. Morrissey says “We had an overwhelming reaction to the acoustic release of our second record in late 2017, so we’ve decided to go back to the beginning and record 'And So It Began, Again… Acoustically. In addition to these new recordings the award winning duo have added 3 bonus songs.
“We had an overwhelming reaction to the acoustic release of our second record in late 2017, so we’ve decided to go back to the beginning and record 'And So It Began, Again… Acoustically’. When we first moved from Dublin to London, and started writing these songs, our only tools were two acoustic guitars and two vocals. You could say that this is actually the way that the songs were intended to be heard.
When we recorded the debut album, there were 2 songs in particular that came very close to making the final track listing. To be honest, we’ve always regretted not adding them to the album as they were big big songs in our live show. For that reason, we’ve decided to give them a good run out this time ‘round and added the bonus tracks to the early part of the record. As well as the bonus tracks ‘Martha' and 'Plastic Jack', we’ve also added a cover of Peter and Gordon’s ‘World Without Love’.
