Behind Closed Doors (39)

10 June 2024


Number 39 in the 'Year of Music' series is now titled 'Behind Closed Doors'. As well as a fresh name, the cover is completely new, it's an edited photo that was taken by me in London, a very rare visit to the big smoke, back in 2012.


The title leans into a line from the final track of the mix that resonated with me, and still does if truth be told; "behind closed doors my spirit wanes". I remembered the image I had on my hard drive of these two doors, number eleven & eleven and a half, I loved that.... most others would have said 11a and 11b, but to actually write "and a half"...  just perfect! Anyway, that final track, just to give some context to the lyrics, it was released during lockdown in 2020. I think I am right in saying that the artists and musicians did their parts individually and it was all pieced together, given we were all cooped up at home. Another very loose connection I have with this title is that a friend from quite a few years ago now had floated the idea of putting on an event with the same name, it never came to be as far as I'm aware, but I'm reminded of it none the less.
