50 St. Catherine’s Drive Release September 2014

This album consists of the best of the last solo recordings made by Robin, mainly recorded between 2006 and 2008. When Robin started making what would eventually become his final solo album, he always knew that it would be titled “50 St. Catherine’s Drive” – the address of the house where he lived when he was born in Douglas, on the Isle of Man. Robin was always clear on what tracks and which versions should be included on this album, and I have respected his wishes here - including the choice of an early version of “Mother of Love.”

Robin planned the album to be a reflective, sometimes autobiographical album, and this intent has been heightened by the inclusion of what is almost certainly the last song Robin ever wrote or sung. “Sydney” was recorded at our home, on an iPad, in the months prior to his passing. Although the quality of the recording is lower than Robin’s usual high standard, it is a track that I feel Robin’s fans should hear. It is fitting that it closes the album as a perfect and poignant bookend to a remarkable career.

Love, Dwina ***

That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.
