Critically acclaimed as one of the best records ever, Robert Wyatt's 1974 Rock Bottom masterpiece has been re-arranged by Craig Fortnam for his amazing North Sea Radio Orchestra. Featuring long time Wyatt's collaborator and Henry Cow founder John Greaves on bass guitar and vocals and the amazing vocalist Annie Barbazza as lead singer: this is a heartfelt, fantastic tribute to Robert Wyatt's music. Cover notes by Robert Wyatt and Jonathan Coe.
"This concert is a beautiful event, for me. These musicians seem to me to have really grasped what my songs are about; but at the same time, created an entirely fresh way of putting the music together. I feel so honored and so grateful." --Robert Wyatt, March 2019
"One of the greatest albums of the 1970s, beautifully reimagined and re-written for orchestra. I have listened to Rock Bottom hundreds of times, and thought I was familiar with it: but this brilliant new version opens up new depths, fresh vistas, hidden truths. An amazing achievement." --Jonathan Coe, March 2019
