Butterflies in the rain will most probably be the last CD set from The NDO project - but what a fabulous way to end !
Featuring Johnny Roadhouse, Angela Christian, and David Brandon, this is my favourite CD of them all.
A tongue in cheek look back at the old Variety shows,with music and songs from that era. Seriously good musicianship beautifully digitally recorded some 30 years ago and sounding so fresh.
Due for release in a very limited edition May 2017
