Some 30 years ago, we wrote an epic track about the (then) massive changes taking place in Gorbachov's Russia, and questioned whether or not things were entirely as they seemed. Hmm ! The name of that song was "How are things in Moscow Anyway? In prog, if something's worth doing, it's worth overdoing, so we threw everything at it, and this song became a highlight of our live gigs, featuring the thundering Entwistle-like bass of Martin Gilmour, and the stunning guitar work of the majestic Mr Tom Kane. We recorded it at Wet Wet Wet's studio in Glasgow, Pet Sounds, and the sessions were engineered by a great guy called Ted Blakeway. As usual, money was tight and time was restricted, so the end product wasn't perfect, but it sold well among our local fanbase, alongside another song which hasn't stood the test of time so well.
Fast forward to now, and Graham, David & myself still love this track as much as we did then, so we decided to remaster it. Hampered by the lack of the original multitrack master tapes (gone, along with the studio alas!), we were restricted to what we could do with a slightly degraded stereo mix. However, it scrubs up to being pretty listenable (we think). Feel free to download it, gratis, on us. If you bought it first time around, thank you for your loyalty- here's your upgrade! If you're hearing this for the first time, we hope you like it, and we hope you'll download more of our music.
Oh, and we have many new songs in various stages of completion, so 2018 could be a big year for Field of Vision! Please subscribe to the mailing list and we will keep you informed of more music.
