Jokerman to be released in Japan




Our latest album 'Jokerman - Songs of Bob Dylan' will be released in Japan next month! Anyone interested in a copy let us know at:


"Jokerman" is a collection of Dylan songs recorded as a tribute to the great American songwriter. Heron are primarily song writers and all three singers have interpreted the songs in their own way. The songs are linked with musical themes and "atmospherics" which give the album continuity and a sense of "wholeness". But the interpretation of the individual song is given primacy through out. Some songs like; The lonesome hobo and God on our side; have brand new melodies. "Others are adapted". 
During the recording process songs were approached from different angles and many eventually rejected. There was an attempt to create a "fireside ambiance" where the singer addreses the listener intimately. 
To help us achieve this the instrumentation has been kept to a minimum, but with a couple of guitars, some keyboard and percussion Heron have created quite a full sound. Topped of course by their trademark vocal harmonies. In my opinion, "Jokerman" is a must have for any card carrying Dylan fan.
