Synopsis

Album Description
'Stand Up and Walk' was Billy's second solo album and followed 'Transportation' (PZLCD101). In this second album Billy makes more use of the natural sounds of the violin, viola and the acoustic grand piano. In his own words he describes the sound as having developed a new more relaxed look at time, spacing and communication of feelings. Billy's skills as a viola and violin player come to the fore in most of the tracks but in 'Ukraine' he is reunited with his Ultravox colleagues, Warren Cann and Chris Cross. This track was intended for an Ultravox album but was not used.
 

CD Reviews

The softer side of Currie's work
05/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beautiful songs as you would expect, but this CD presents a quieter, softer side of Currie's work. The songs are more classical in nature, similar to Unearthed. The title track, as well as French Viola, Requiem, Crisis and Change of Heart are favorites, but the best is saved for last...Irish Widdershins."
