Featuring the Head Gardeners, and guest musicians Mick Talbot & Marco Nelson.

B side 'Roll Another'  

'Shimmering in all the right places' Adam Walton, BBC Wales.

Plan Your Own Escape (Album) Released 2006

The debut album featured guest artists -  Kenwyn House (Reef),  Terry McGaughey (Millimetre) and Jess Noble.

 

 ‘James McArthur's release is a touching acoustic record featuring some very pleasant guitar parts and songs that grow and grow. The album contains some great pop moments too whimsically blending folk, pop and singer songwriter morbidity. Very nice stuff.’  Rough Trade
