Town On A Western Plain EP CD
Coming Back Again - the best of - the unfinished sessions [2003 LP]


This compilation album is the result of many hours in the studio in 2001 and 2003 for a project to produce the songs used in the series of Music Language tutorials in which Lyle's songs are used as examples and exercises.

During that time it was envisioned that they would develop into the albums Episode and Back In My Own Backyard, however a lack of funds has held up all these projects to date, and so there is this situation where a lot of recording had been done without a finished project.

"As I seem to keep coming back to my music on a regular basis to try something the title track Coming Back Again seemed appropriate."

In the true tradition of some pretty weird "Best Of .." Albums it has been decided to call this a 'Best Of " album, even though there has ever only been one single released which was not a top 1000 hit. Hmm!! So 'the best of - the unfinished sessions' is put together!

The bonus tracks are two instrumental versions of tracks from the Instrumental album "Pioneer".

This album is NOW AVAILABLE ON CD * [AUD$20 inc postage within Australia]

New Projects 2017



Recording started for the album in 2003 however due to unforeseen circumstances the project was put on permanent hold. Glad now to be back into it and hope to go into a Perth studio in 2017 to finish it off along with a new album All My History.

Episode LP CD
All My History


Having started to seriously write new songs circa 2013 after arriving in Mount Barker WA and feeling a little more settled again, the album is slowly taking shape, with the addition of a couple of previously recorded tracks started in the 2003 sessions and featuring a long-unfinished song from 1975. Yes, I am a horder when it comes to my songs, you never know when inspiration will resurrect something.
