Tex & CP: Six Songs (2013)
The album Six Songs, as the name suggests, contains six songs by Noel Harrison, all of which were recorded during 2012 and released the following year.
It was made with Exeter-based musician Phil Rossiter on backing vocals and guitar. His performance adds a depth to Noel's music not seen on his previous album, From the Sublime to the Ridiclious, where Noel performed solo.
The record also has more of a country feel than Noel's previous work, leading to the name of the spoof country band, Tex & CP - with Noel's country music name, Tex Harrison, chosen as a reference to his father, Rex.
All six tracks on the album are as good as anything Noel recorded in the later part of his career, with stand-outs including the Ralph McTell song 'Moon, June and a Cajun Tune' and Roy Orbison's Blue Bayou.
It also features a new recording of Noel's own 2010 track, 'Pre Alzheimers Old Timers' Old Time Song', which first featured on From the Sublime to the Ridiclious.
