CASCADE (1995) – Scarlet vinyl, Double LP + four bonus tracks
His last solo album for Beggars, Cascade came after a time of change for Peter Murphy. He had dissolved his longtime backing band and moved to Turkey with his family. After a year of soul-searching and re-discovery, the songs flowed. He said “It confirmed my belief that writing – like painting or any art form – comes from a very silent place that’s not dependent on outside stimulus. It was like rediscovering the initial innocence and purity that’s there when you join your first band.” The album was written with Paul Statham and produced by Pascal Gabriel. It also contains guitar work by noted artist Michael Brook.
The four bonus tracks added to Cascade are:
Mercy Rain (production rough mix)
Gliding Like A Whale (backing track)
Sail on White (backing track)
Wish (backing track)
