“Wilson and the Champs’ finest set yet” ★★★★ MOJO
Danny & The Champions Of The World has always been a pretty loose collection of great musicians, songwriters, stowaways and adventurers. The current line up is the most steady so far – it’s not a collective of folks now, it’s a band, a great band: Danny George Wilson (acoustic guitar, lead vocals), Chris Clarke (bass, vocals), Paul Lush (guitar, vocals), Steve Brookes (drums, vocals) and Geoff Widdowson (saxophone, organ, vocals), Henry Senior (pedal steel guitar).
‘Stay True’ is the fourth album from Danny & The Champions Of The World. It’s also Danny George Wilson’s eleventh album which includes six long players from the much loved Grand Drive plus a solo outing (as Danny George Wilson) entitled ‘Famous Mad Mile’. Danny has been touring the world and making critically acclaimed records for nearly 20 years now, the first Grand Drive release was on Loose back in 1997. ‘Stay True’ was recorded over five days at North London’s Reservoir Studios with Champs bass player Chris Clarke (ex Rockingbirds) and Danny at the helm.
“Sounds as if it was made in Stax Studios by a collective of Nashville’s finest Country musicians… unquestionably their finest” ★★★★★ MAVERICK
