A Bend In The River ist eine besondere Auswahl aus Coversongs, die im Haus von Roy Gandy (Gründer und Besitzer von Rega) in Essex aufgenommen wurde. Diese einzigartige Cover-Mischung hatte ein klares musikalisches Ziel und sollte auf höchstem Niveau aufgenommen werden, um Musikliebhaber und analoge Puristen gleichermaßen anzusprechen.

From the moment I found a way into the arrangements, I had a very clear idea how they should eventually sound. (arranged by Gary Bennett)

For this album, I have taken apart and re-arranged some “classic” songs with the deliberate intention of approaching them from a very different direction to previous interpretations. The arrangements were constructed to facilitate simple recording, sometimes in a single live take, using just one or two accompanying instruments. For many of the songs, the vocals were intended to be an equal part of the ensemble, rather than the dominant feature, hopefully giving more prominence to the music. From the moment I found a way into the arrangements, I had a very clear idea how they should eventually sound. Playing most of the instruments myself was an immediate way to achieve the desired results. Also, I was fortunate to work with singers and musicians who had faith in my vision for the song. Finding the right vocalist for each song was perhaps the greatest challenge we faced, culminating in a world-wide search. Because of the organic qualities inherent in the medium, and (contrary to popular belief) the lack of technical constraints, we chose to record using tape and to remain in the analogue domain throughout. To this end, we utilised the unparalleled expertise of Terry Bateman, Rega’s electronics genius, who designed and built a fully discreet mixer and mic preamps. Terry also renovated and serviced the stunning Studer A-80 tape machines that were at the heart of the project.
