Steven Michael: Stranger In Your Shadow (1985)

This was basically Steven Michael McCabe in singer-songwriter mode. The album was recorded using the ‘overdub as many times as can be gotten away with technique’.  And, boy, does it show!

All the songs featured Steven on vocals, various guitars, super cheap keyboards and two-track tape machine. The music was excellent, but the vocals, unfortunately, weren’t!

Hand drawn cover, only 10 copies made. Impossibly rare – let’s hope it stays like that!
