The Knife by Simon Campbell

LP

The Knife

Released on by Supertone Records

The album is a blend of Americana, Blues and Contemporary Folk, exploring acoustic instrumentation and Simon's love of the electric guitar, Mellotron and Hammond organ.

His second solo album showcases songs about real people and places: the observations of a Northern Man. It reflects Simon's increasing love of acoustic music from both sides of the Atlantic.

We have worked hard to produce the finest sounding record we could using the best equipment, recording techniques and mastering. When listening to the 180g vinyl - by far the best medium on which to appreciate the album - you feel totally connected to the songs.

If you download, we recommend you use our store as you can choose the quality you want from the best 24 bit / 96 kHz all the way down to mp3.

Buy the CD / Vinyl (which comes with digital download card) directly from our store and we add a selection of goodies that will be signed and personalised just for you.

Reviews

  • Simon has achieved something great here, an album that stands on it’s own, packed with greatness, and that is completely unlike anything I’ve heard from him in the past.

    Ian McHugh, Blues Is The Truth

  • It's really hard hitting, deep stuff - 5/5.

    Rebecca Colette Lawrence, Music & Manxies

  • With the quality of vocals on every track, it is not surprising that Simon gained a nomination as a Male vocalist in the 2011 British Blues awards; always restrained, full of emotional intelligence as he gently delivers the lyrics.

    Liz Aiken, Bluesdoodles

  • Six delicate tracks with sublime sound - while the seventh and last? Yup: pure swamp blues. The FLAC version is terrific.
