Now this is the sort of track that really should be a Christmas hit. It may not be intended as a song for the upcoming Festive Season, but it has warmth and depth and valuable sentiments beautifully expressed. xxxxxx

thank you Ciggi…
always a pleasure to hear your your thoughts on matters musical!

Like Ciggi said, high potential for becoming a holiday classic. It has all those beautiful sentiments you’re supposed to feel this time of year, or anytime you think of home, and also the sadness for those of us who hear in the lyrics more of a non-existent ideal than a reality. Great bittersweet backing track too. Truly beautiful.

yes - I wanted to capture some of the poignancy of the bittersweet -
thanks for the review Sir Speck!

funny this song was not intended to be a holiday song at all -
It was written in the summer in fact a few years ago….
but I can see how the inviting spirit of the lyric could be extended to a sense of festivity…

Beautiful. The lyric, your singing, the music. Like an ancient medieval british troubadour piece in a modern setting. Lovely

Oh brother - this is absolutely beautiful.

I love your singing here - very emotional, very sensitive, very real.

Great, great work.

Beautiful, lyrics that reached a part of me I thought was unavailable anymore. Simple but so powerful. Never have trouble listening to your singing and always impressed with your phrasing…

a lyricist always likes to hear that his words have an impact -
that means the intent was successful! Thanks!

I am very impressed Anchor!!!!! I am not sure what is going on here but, your voice is becoming more beautiful and lovely to listen to.
I loved the last song “Beloved” and I love “Welcome Home” too. Whatever creative inspiration has become your muse as of late I like and am looking forward to the next creation.

Oooooooh, I love it….the music had me swaying, then smiling, then the words, then the tears…. so beautiful, Anchor, and then when I got to the end and realized it is dedicated to me, my heart almost burst… thank you, thank you, thank you….

I love, love, love this song. It is just incredibly warm and full of love.

I used this “pad for welcom” but absolutely not in this context voice and musical, I just listened.
Merveilleuse chanson, super arrangement musical.
Sorry, I do not know much about your directory, but I will endeavor to fill this gap (and I hope that our mutual friend “Per” help me.)

Ah, the Welcome Home project. I felt very honoured that you asked me to do the mix and even more honoured that you guys decided to go with my mix (although I personally liked Radiotimes’ version better). It was important for me at the time, since I had had some bad experiences with only mixing (not remixing) other people’s stuff.

This was always a great track with a beautiful vibe and this version is a lovely variation with some very good new vocals. But then again, I have always been a fan of your voice.

THis is what Peter Murphy would sound like disguised as Robin Hood serenading maid Mariam in Sherwood Forest.

Somehow I missed this. The production is great and to my ear you sound a LOT like Edwyn Collins here (which is no bad thing). Well done.

Yes, one of my all-time favorites on ccM…doesn’t get much better than this.
