Welcome to the out-of-the-blue release of Ian's version of the Kinks' classic "Waterloo Sunset." It wasn't really planned, but there is a plan behind it: to raise money for friends in need. You may recognize the name Allison Moore; she is the wonderfully talented artist responsible for the paintings that grace Ian’s last two album covers, not to mention one of his singles. She’s been a valued ally for a long while now. And with that spirit in mind, Ian wants to be her ally as her husband Vernon Adams recovers from an extremely serious accident (truck+vespa—that’s enough math for you, surely). So, having heard about the unfortunate accident, Camp McGlynn did what we do best to help: make music.
Currently Vernon Adams is recovering from his multitude of injuries and the induced coma he’s been in for weeks. So Ian recorded a version of one of their mutual favorite songs for him to enjoy. Yep, Waterloo Sunset. But it’s for you to enjoy too. At a name-your-own-price to purchase, please. You see, Vernon Adams is a freelancer, and the loss of his wages for the months he will be unable to work, is a huge blow. Which is why we’re asking you to contribute what you can. 100% of what you contribute goes to the Moore/Adams family.
“Every day I look at the world from my window.” Hoping you get to see the sunset on the other side of the hospital walls soon, brother.
Available exclusively here at Bandcamp.
