Geraint Watkins’ debut rock’n’roll LP produced by Andy Fairweather Low for Vertigo in 1979; the back-story is told by Andy in the notes. The album features Geraint’s 'Deep in the Heart of Texas' song, later covered by Don McLean, NRBQ and Dave Edmunds amongst others. Eight more tracks, four with top producer Glyn Johns, feature on the bonus LP. Geraint & the Dominators went on to back Shakin' Stevens’ hits, then Dave Edmunds, and became Willy & the Poor Boys alongside three of the Rolling Stones. Geraint was soon the pianist of choice for top artists such as Van Morrison, Nick Lowe, Status Quo, Mark Knopfler, Bill Wyman, Paul McCartney, etc. His songs have been covered and championed by many notable artists (including Bob Dylan) and his song craft, interpretations, feel and engaging performances all elevate him to be an equal amongst his peers.
