When I was touring a lot in Europe, Normal Records asked for a distinctly different type of album from me. It was to represent the live and acoustic sound of my concerts in Germany, Greece and other parts of Europe. At times, it was in solo form, or with Charlie Owen and other collaborations. There was also one tour with The Aspersion Caste in the early days. So we started with "The Ugly Truth". Following it's success, we moved onto "Midnight Rain", and completed the set with "Life@The Basement" aka "Live @ The Basement".
They were fairly low budget recordings, which was fine, since we were trying to capture a live feel. The final album was entirely Live...at The Basement, of course...and was also filmed as part of the documentary "A Night At Sea" for Round The Outside Productions. It was first screened on ABC TV in 2000 in Australia. Please enjoy these albums, which were once Mail Order only - limited to 2000 copies, through Normal Records, Return To Sender, and Glitterhouse Mail Order. Feel free to leave your comments below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also on Facebook and Twitter @LouisTheTillett. LT
It is because of these altruistic people, that I can allow EVERYONE to listen to and download my entire musical catalogue, so I can get on with new projects. And in reality, anything over and above the maintenance costs of the site, go directly towards those new projects...whether that be collaborations, studio time, keeping the Van on the road, and touring and accommodation costs. It is an expensive past-time - making music. So "From Me To You" Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And for those who cannot afford to donate...please SHARE the website link...and the music...and feel free to leave a comment or contact me anytime.
With the launch of a new album and the unusual format of allowing all music to be downloaded freely, I have found great support, with an average of 1000 unique visitors per week. This is based purely on Word of Mouth with referrals mostly from Facebook. So that's a good sign to me, that the site was something you were all interested in seeking out.
I am glad that I persisted in this mission to bring you my entire body of work...and trust your good intentions. Please continue to enjoy the music, the pictures, and stories while it is still free. And I will continue to upload more content, in between musical projects and live concert commitments.
